Battery swelling in YB1-X91F

I have a Yoga Book YB1-X91F that is a little more than two years old. A few weeks ago, I noticed that the keyboard area is bulging, I assume due to a swelling battery. The computer still works fine otherwise. Of course, it's out of warranty.

 

Is there anything I can do? Can the battery even be replaced, or is my Yoga Book garbage at this point?

The halo keyboard on mine is slightly warped.  I'm assuming it is from the battery swelling.  Other than the annoyance of my Ypga Book not folding complete flat in tablet mode, it hasn't affected anything else.

I guess I'm glad to know it's not just mine. Is there any reason to believe this is potentially hazardous, or if the thing isn't rapidly expanding it's probably fine?

It's probably fine. There would have been a recall if it was hazardous .

Exact the same happens to my Yoga Book.

But all works fine until now.

When it was new i had to use my fingernails to open it, but now it opens itself Smiley Wink

Mine is a little more than two years old. The battery seems normal except for the part that the battery life has decreased from originally 13 hours (as claimed by Lenovo) to no more than two hours of continuous use. The overheating problem has to be a reason for this.
