swollen tear duct
either my tear duct in the inner corner of my left eye is swollen or the immediate surrounding area on my upper lid is and it hasn't gone down for a couple days and moderately hurts (like a three or four on a 1-10 fine-crying scale) i think its getting worse and im somewhat worried about it.

If this is in the lid skin, it could be a stye.  If it is over the skin on the side of the nose where glasses would sit, this could be an infection in the lacrimal sac called a dacryocystitis.  Either way treatment might involve the need for antibiotic drops and/or pills, so I recommend that you see an ophthalmologist.  In the meantime, start warm compresses.
