It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, and physical examination. You may watch and wait. If the swelling more than doubles, you develop an ulcer or discharge, inguinal lymph nodes become enlarged, you get fever or lose weight, see a doctor.
Wish you good health!
