Muscle swelling

I have a muscle swelling on left side of jaw below cheeks its been there for more than a month with no pain .. Neither it has grown in size nor it has decreased . I used minoxidil 5 on my face for beard growth just to let you know if that matters . And i use to smoke . I have become health anxious since i have quit smoking .

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Any swelling, anwhere in the body needs to be evaluated.
Its very difficult to comment on anything without examining the swelling.
Kindly consult a general surgeon in person for further evaluation and management. 
It might not even be a muscle thing as you are saying.
Best regards.
