He has been receiving this for about 4 weeks now, & this just happened yesterday
Did he flush with the heparin to keep the line from getting clogged? If he is having a home health nurse attending to his line, they should have noticed. My hubby had one for a couple of months a few years ago and he and I worked together taking care of it in between doc visits and home health once or twice a week to check to see if the line was still nice and clear and not looking infected. Swelling a little is ok, but not painful swelling, that could mean it needs immediate care. Good luck!
