Welcome to health care magic
It is a post traumatic swelling .Is it associated with pain or not .Is movement of arm are painful or decreased.It appears a simple case of soft tissue injury followed by swelling.But still advise you to tale anti inflammatory drugs along with some antibiotics & cold sponging.if no relief go for X-ray to rule out fracture ,as in fracture swelling is more & associated with pain.
