Hello, swelling is not caused by nerve injury , it could be due to vascular pathology leading to edema formation , cellulitis, vasculitis can cause limb swelling , if he has broken bone with the history of injury then also edema forms , if there is local tenderness ,redness , you Better take him to surgeon .
