Hi and welcome to the forum. The parotid glands can swell with Sjogren's disease. It can happen on one or both sides. If you research sjogren's you should be able to find info and photos. There is an increased risk of lymphoma with Sjogren's - I hope you will go back to a rheumatologist. There will probably be others here with more info on the connection between Sjogren's and Lupus - but I know the parotid gland problems are specific to Sjogren's. Good luck to you!
