Not very common that only the cheeks get swollen. No raised scales on the rest of the body? Pop eye? If so, might be dropsy.

Alternatively possibly a tumor, however, difficult to diagnose without a photo. Have you got photos?

Can U also try and check the condition of the gills. There might be infection or necrosis there.

Have never encountered it but Pieter De Villies mentioned "Swollen cheek disease" or "frog disease" on this forum. See http://koionline.forumotion.com/t2350-khv-versus-nodular-disease
