Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
It is likely to be a lymph node.
It can be enlarged from an infection of adjacent organ or skin or soft tissue.
Mumps usually causes swelling on both sides.
Pumps swelling is more diffuse in nature.
You can wait & watch.
You can give him motrin.
Warm application can be done.
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
