What caused a swollen battery on our S10e?

One of our Samsung S10e phones revealed a slightly bowed screen and back that was diagnosed as a swollen battery. It’s my wife’s phone that gets used often on extended calls and she complains of its getting hot. My identical S10e is relatively rarely used and hardly ever heats up. What might have caused hers to? They are both on wireless chargers most of the time.
