I am 54 yrs old, 2 years ago developed a fluid like swelling on my upper right cheek, it seems to grow and shrink, it also appears to have a small point of minor bruising on the area pointing to the bridge of the nose?
Is this Malar Bags? Can a person develop malar bags on one side?

Sounds like a malar bag.
The occur at the top of the cheek between ligament systems just below the lower eyelid. Yes sometimes they are worse on one side (often the side you sleep on). There are a range of options to address these from surgery to fillers to chemical peels.
