Swelling is an indication of blood/fluid accumulating at your elbow. It could have been caused by either an external injury which damaged the blood vessels directly, or due to inflammation.

The spongy swelling of the elbow occurs because of the presence of fluids in it which make it swell. It might occur because of too much bending of the elbow.

Swelling is associated with trauma or an underlying condition. Usually elbow region swelling is caused from trauma which can be from moving your arm or picking up something. Try ice for 10 mins a few times a day. If you do not find relief seek care form your PCP.
