Question
just noticed a small swelling on my right temple...is this something to be very concerned about?

as an aside, i get headaches on my right side located in the temple area and have for many, many years.

Answer
It may be anything. Since you have had these headaches for many years it is most unlikely that they have any connection with your swelling. If your swelling gets worse or persists for more than a few days let a doctor check it.
