In brief: Exam/x-ray

to rule out chip fracture.
You will need an ankle support and if severe, crutches or a walking shoe or cast. See an orthopedic expert.

In brief: Alternative

How was the ankle injured? Mechanism of injury is also helpful.
What and how you injured the ankle. Once established and no pathology on X-ray I would start a simple and very effective therapy. Contrast bath therapy will help localize the area of involvement
