Hello, thanks for your question.
The inner corner of the eye (near the nose) is called the medial canthus, connecting the upper and lower eyelids. Swelling in this area can be caused by the following conditions:
Inflammation and infection. For example, infection of the lacrimal sac (tears) is called dacryocystitis. The presence of cysts, such as sebaceous cysts. Dacryolithiasis, in which 'stones' form which are concentrated in the tear sac of dead cells and proteins. Furthermore, this condition can cause blockages in the tear ducts. Tumor or malignancy. Of course, to know the exact cause requires direct examination by a doctor. For that you can consult a general practitioner or an ophthalmologist. The examinations that may be needed include eye examinations, head CT scans, or other examinations as indicated. It's a good idea to get your symptoms checked immediately before they get worse and complications occur.
That's the information I can convey, I hope it's useful.
