Do you think it is an abscessed tooth? Did you check her mouth?

Is it her cud in her cheek?

Is it bottle Jaw? A swelling equally on both sides of the cheek and under the jawline ...almost a pooling look?

Bee sting? Any puncture hole?

Can you get a pic?

I agree with toth boer's suggestions. I had a doe once with a swollen cheek...finally pried her mouth open and looked in with a flashlight to find a broken abscessed tooth. Brought her to the vet & had it removed and she's been good ever since.
