Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a physician.

Multiple measures.: Before becoming too alarmed, I would do a series of measurements at various times of the day, (Early morning, Noon and Evening), just to see if the enlargement is reflective of muscle activity or dependency.
