See an M.D.: Most serious cause may be infection which needs to be seen by a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

What is swollen?: Need more information to answer this question appropriately. Is the swelling in the ear canal or in the external ear. Are there other symptoms? Have you had trauma to the area, been bitten by anything, are you allergic to some topical preparation, is is accompanied by redness, tenderness, and so on? Try an ice pack and if this doesn't work see your family doctor.
