The ear swelling is on the inside. I can fit an earphone comfortably in my left ear but only get it halfway with my right. Could this be swimmers ear?

In brief: Possibly

If there is no discomfort and this is not a new symptom then it is likely not swimmer's ear.
It could be something as simple as an earwax impaction. A physician's evaluation should easily make the diagnosis.

In brief: Anatomic defect?

Swimmers ear , you get oozing, discharge from your ear canal.
Perhaps, your right ear anatomy is different, and therefore it doesn't fit well.
