Hi, you should visit a dentist and get it diagnosed, sometimes when there is discrepancy in occlusion like cross bites premature contact etc and having chewing gum, that can cause swelling in face near to ear( i.e.. TMJ) but its associated with pain. You have not given any information about pain. Best of luck.

It can only be assessed clinically viewing the swelling so better you visit your nearby dentist first

It is definitely not because of chewing gum. We need to check the swelling clinically.. Location, consistency, mobile, tooth associated etc only then one can give you a proper treatment plan. Please visit a dentist asap. Thank you
