In brief: RICE
Being with rice, and avoid the activities that exacerbate the swelling.
If this and a gradual return to activity does not alleviate the symptoms, see an orthopedist for evaluation.

In brief: Get evaluated
Swelling after a workout could indicate a joint problem. If simple icing and rest does not work to alleviate the problem, then an evaluation by an orthopedist including an xray should be performed.
