3 doctors agree

In brief: No

It's ok to ignore for a few weeks, but anything going on for months should be checked out, could be inflammed ligament, could be bone tumor.
It should be evaluated by doctor.

In brief: I agree

If using rice and nsaids does not relieve your symptoms you should be evaluated.
If there was a specific mechanism of injury it may also be a good idea to be seen by an orthopedist for an xray and evaluation.
