I wouldn't worry about cancer. It sounds like an enlarged lymph gland. Possibly, you have been in contact with someone who has an infection of some sort, maybe a mild virus. Since you haven't displayed any symptoms of illness, I would think that the gland will probably shrink soon. If you develop a sore throat and a fever, go to your doctor. You are probably fighting off any infectious virus that you have come into contact with and that is why your lymph gland is enlarged.Health Question & Answer

probably your parotid gland which secretes saliva. or maybe an enlarged lymph gland which indicated infection. See your school nurse or family doctor if it's still there in a week. If it gets worse or you get a fever, have it checked soonerHealth Question & Answer
