Swollen ankle without pain. How to reduce it?

Resolved Question:

Hello, I am wondering whats wrong with my ankles . I am 5'4" , approx . 190 lbs female. I have what looks like a swollen ankle but it is just a very soft mushy feeling area next to my ankle. It does not hurt. I just want it gone. It does not look nice when I wear my heels. See attached pics. ( I am not kidding).
Is there a procedure to reduce this swollen ankle look?

Reply by Dr. Mukesk Tiwari, Orthopedic Surgeon :
Looking at all your details, you seem to have either a collection of fluid in your ankle joint or in a superficial bursa (tissue cushion between two tendons or between bone and tendon etc).
Your doctor may examine this & may inject a steroid injection into your joint. This will reduce the swelling. You should also avoid wearing excessive heels because this puts excessive stress over ankle joints.
Hope this was helpful to you. Please feel free to discuss further.
With best wishes.>>
