Patient :My father has a swelling on his face, he says it doesn't hurt. It started today in the afternoon. I'm scared he might be having a stroke. Is there any symptoms I should be aware of. I tried making him smile but his swelling on the right side doesn't let him smile. He says he doesn't feel any numbness. I'm really concerned my father is 60 years old and has been going through a lot of headaches.
