My dentist has felt the lump - about 1.5 inches in front of left ear, and above the jaw line about the same distance. I've been told that it is a lymph gland that has "stopped up". This has been going on for a few months, and the only change is a slight feeling of pressure on that side. The xrays made by the dentis do not show anything - I'm thinking I might need to persue this with a medical doctor?

Yes...you should show this lump to your primary care medical provider. Most lymph nodes are "innocent", but they do deserve to be adequately evaluated.
