A Bump Under my Ears? (photo)

So I have a bump right under my ears one is more obvious than the other and I asked a surgeon before and he said it was my massator muscle but I researched it and i believe it the parotid gland, at least I think so. Is it possible to remove it because it make my face look way chubby

Hi, if it is the parotid gland it cant be removed. If its the massaeter muscle their some ways to reduce the volume of it. But the swelling lasts forva while.
