Most probably local abscess formation
Thank you for getting back with the answers. Actually i was waiting for the image that's why did not reply earlier. So far i did not get any image. The symptoms you mentioned are suggestive of abscess formation. However it needs workup to confirm the status and management. I would suggest you to once visit hospital and get examined by a general surgeon. Meanwhile get ultrasound of that swelling done along with CBC. Results of these will help to proceed further with management which will include incision & drainage followed by antibiotic cover. Meanwhile take acetaminophen thrice a day for pain.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
