Swollen Lymph Node Both sides below Jaw

For the past few days have had swollen lymph nodes on both sides of face right below jaw. They are both about equal in size, so far they’ve been around for 4 days, that I’ve noticed. I don’t have a sore throat, runny/stuffy nose, or any other noticeable symptoms (which started to worry me). Could there be any other reason why I would get swollen symptoms right below jaw, I’ve checked other areas on my head/neck, arms, groin and don’t have swollen lymph nodes any where else.

You could have a subclinical infection that your body will resolve by itself.  Have you had a dental appointment recently? Problems with your teeth can cause lymph nodes in your jaw to swell.
No dental appointment recently, haven’t had dental pain. I’m probably reading into too much, should I give it a week or two before going to the doctors? Don’t think I’ve every noticed lymph nodes being swollen at least while not without an obvious scold or flu.
Forgot to mention and noticed the last couple of day I’ve been waking up with dry nose and mouth.
