Possible ganglion: There are some various things that can present that way. The area that you describe is a common place for ganglions to form. Another consideration, is the Extensor Digitorum Brevis muscle belly. This can become enlarged due to various stresses. It is located on the lateral or little toe side of the foot near the ankle. If you are having pain from this you may want to have this checked out.

If you don't have a health threatening condition, limiting salt intake (sodium) and keeping your feet elevated will help.See 1 more doctor answer
RICE: For minor injuries, the rice treatment can help relieve swelling and pain. Rest – protect your injured foot and avoid prolonged standing or walking. Ice – no more than 15 minutes at a time and don’t apply ice directly to your skin. Compression – apply an ace wrap. Elevation – try to elevate your foot above your heart. If your symptoms don’t improve after 48 hours, see your doctor.
Depends: On what is causing swelling. If it is from an injury, ice within first 48 hours will be helpful. There are various other conditions that may cause swelling. Ice will not help in the majority of these cases.See 4 more doctor answers

See a podiatrist: If this is a chronic problem, you have to rule out a fracture or tendonitis, or both. You may have injured it without knowing. It may even be a nerve pinched in that area or your back. I would suggest having it properly examined and get x-rays. If you continue to walk with pain, you risk injuring it more, changing the way you are walking and creating a new problem because of compensation.See 1 more doctor answer
