I have a swelling just under my ear on the left side of my face. Although there is no pain, it is a little tender to the touch. I haven't had a sore throat or even a cold.

tjackson61, you probably have a swollen lymph node. Lymph nodes swell when a person's body is fighting off a cold, allergies, infection... It is normal and should go away on its own. Don't press on it or bother it or it will become painful.
