Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Please provide the following clarifications:

- How long have you been having the swelling?
- Was the onset sudden or gradual?
- Is it progressive?
- What is the size of the swelling?
- Are the edges well-defined or indistict?
- Does the swelling increase in size on coughing or straining and disappear at certain times (like pushing it in or lying down flat)?
- Is it painful?
- Are there any any skin changes - redness, warmth, discolouration, presence of a punctum (i.e. a small central opening or depression)?
- Have you had similar swellings before?
- Do you suffer from any previous medical disorders?

Please get back to me with these details so that I can guide you better.
(You can copy and paste these questions and write your answers next to each question)

Wish you all the best.
