    Swelling has implications as regards to pain. Swelling is a manifestation of pain.
    Roughly speaking, this is how it works

    Slight swelling: slight.jpg adds 2 points of pain

    Moderate swelling: moderate.jpg adds 4 points of pain

    Heavy swelling: large.jpg adds 7 points of pain

    Huge swelling: gross.jpg adds 9-10 points of pain
