A:   It is important to know if the swelling is painful or painless. Also, the pattern of its appearance and progress over the last two weeks is important to decipher the possible cause. A painful swelling, could be due to an impending abscess, whereas a painless swelling could be due to an allergic reaction. You should visit your GP for a proper clinical evaluation and further advice.
