I think this is salivary duct obstruction and we should do a sialogram for confirmation. Then we can make an appropriate therapeutic plan accordingly.
But if only this much info is given in the question and you have to choose between these 3 options then i will go with '3'.
3- removing the second molar and drainage of region .
