If its bulging then a replacement of Hose might be needed. As Alfy said.

Because of the nature of the water pumps a blockage in the system doesn't increase the pressure. So even if say the radiator was badly blocked, the pressure in the upper rad hose which is the inlet wouldn't increase. Plus if the radiator was that badly blocked you would notice a temp increase on hills etc.
