In brief: Yes
In addition to dr. Schnur's comment, pain at that particular joint can also be associated with pre-dislocation syndrome, or damage to the joint from overload/overuse.
Untreated this will lead to joint instabliity and dislocation. Another specific cause is an injury called avascular necrosis (freibergs infraction.) it is imporant to get a correct diagnosis and treatment to avoid future problems.

In brief: Yes
Swelling at that joint could be consistent with arthritis, infection, or be related to trauma.
This does require additional medical attention.

Get an x=ray to rule out a fracture.
It could also be a capsulitis.
