It is possible that you a viral infection of the parotic gland and I suggest that you consult your doctor for an examination and blood tests. In the interim, you can test for inflammation of the parotic gland by eating a sour sweet or biting into a slice of lemon. If you experience extreme discomfort in the area of the swelling, you probably have mumps.
