In brief: Many possibilities

Possibilities range from allergies to infection to any other cause of localized swelling.
Depending on whether it continues or resolves on its own will determine how you need to be seeing your doctor or not. Either way if this becomes a recurrent or persistent problem, i would bring it to your doctor's attention.
