Hi, The swelling in cheek is maybe infection in wisdom tooth present in lower jaw for which xray should be taken.Please visit a dentist who will prescribe antibiotics & painkillers to reduce swelling & discomfort.Meanwhile do warm water & salt gargles 2 to 3 times daily.

Hi
It is probably the wisdom tooth which is causing the problem.
Next Steps
Visit dentist and get a Xray done. If it is in an unfavourable position, get it pulled out. If not a procedure called operculectomy can be done.
