Swelling/Headache in sphenoid region 6 months after head injury

Hi. Could someone provide some insight into these symptoms? I need to know if I should be seeking treatment more aggressively.

I sustained a moderate head injury during an attempted mugging nearly 6 months ago. I was struck in the right temple/sphenoid region. After being treated for swelling/pain at the hospital and having an MRI done to check that there was no bleeding I was discharged.

I have recently noticed that there is swelling in the sphenoid/temporal region. However, this bulge could have been there since the incident. I only noticed the bulge when I started getting headaches in that area. The headache today is worse than previous days.

Other info/symptoms: 23 year old male (seemingly healthy). Swollen painless left submandibular salivary gland, small sore above said gland in mouth (close to duct origin (not opening), maybe a stone?). Excessive right jaw/ear popping. Occasional stuffiness and small amounts of blood when blowing nose.

I'm currently away from home, but have placed a call to a local ENT. However, I haven't heard anything back yet.
