What could be the cause of painless swelling in the left side of the face?
Likely to be angioneurotic edema.
Welcome and thanks for your query.
You are likely to be having an attack of angioneurotic edema. If you can upload a picture, I may be able to confirm it.
It sometimes is related to exposure to a substance you are allergic to, but often no such agent is discovered.
It can be dangerous if it occurs in the mouth or throat and produce obstruction to the air passage.
It would be good to see a doctor and have yourself investigated.
Hope I have answered your question.
