Swelling within 60 minutes means bleeding from fractured bones or structures around it.swelling over 6- 24 means mostly not due to fractures but synovial effusion from damage of other structures of knee.

Hello there...I can understand your concern. From the picture it looks like there could be some inflammation and haematoma. Try to cold compresses. You will need oral anti inflammatory medications. Also we will have to do clinical examination and look for any abnormal movements to rule out fracture. So kindly consult a orthopedic for further evaluation.
