    You should see a doctor as soon as you can. Is the area red at all, warm to the touch? Or is there any streaking? That would be a sign of infection, but the swelling sounds to me to be more than normal, unless it was a really long cut.

    The first line of defense of the body to not have an infection is for swelling to occur. It is actually a good sign. Swelling means that your body is detecting a problem and the components of the WBC's like leukocytes are trying to protect you from getting an infection.
