Welcome to e health forum.

It is difficult to provide you exact medical diagnosis about your condition without a proper physical examination of your swelling.

But most likely possibilities which can present in such situations would be a infected abscess or a collection of blood (Hematoma) .

Both these conditions need urgent medical attention to avoid any form of complications.

Hence It would be highly recommended that you consult a doctor at the earliest and seek proper medical advice.
