Hi,

Thanks for posting the query.

Considering the history of fall 2 months back and presence of tender swelling since then, I suggest that you immediately visit an orthopedician and get your imaging tests done. There is a high probability of non healed fracture of your cheek bone with fracture hematoma formation at the site.

Hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Regards,
