Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
It is difficult to comment only on the basis of history. It would be better if you get MRI examination of the swelling and needle biopsy. Since you have noticed this swelling in one month that means it is growing fast and that is not good thing. I would suggest you to show it to surgeon as soon as possible.
