In brief: See the doctor
Swelling in that location can be from several different sources depending on whether it's in front of or behind the ear including lymph nodes, parotid gland, and mastoiditis.
She needs to be evaluated by her doctor.

This is not something I can diagnose over the internet. You should consult with her doctor. Perhaps you will find this algorithim useful for further characterizing your mother's condition: http://familydoctor.org/familydoctor/en/health-tools/search-by-symptom/facial-swelling.html
