Brief Answer:
It could be due to trauma.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I saw the pic.
It is due to trauma, most probably occurred while shaving.
Apply hot fomentation.
It doesn't look like expanding.
I prescribe Tablet containing Trypsin, Chymotrypsin and Anti inflammatory tablet to my patients with similar complaints.
Nothing to worry. It will come down.
Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
Regards
