hi madam..have you checked for decay of teeth nearby the swelling?usually hard palate gets swollen due to accumulation of pus in that region.usually it occurs due to dental caries,periodontitis etc.this will result in absess formation.visit your dentist and get check-up done.depending on the condition,we can decide the treatment like absess drainge/curettage etc..take care..
