Thanks for the query,

However it has been too long for the swelling as it should have subsided by now. Such swelling results due to inflammation of the local area or hematoma formation which usually subsides within a month but if it didn't have subsided it means the inflammation yet not have subsided.

You actually haven't mentioned the area you got hit on. I suggest an examination to rule out the other reasons.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask
