Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have undergone surgery of Circumcision for Phimosis very recently and have swelling near suture line. This is due to tissue reaction to suture material and nothing to be worried about. It will get resolved as the healing will progress may be in 3 weeks time.
