Brief Answer:
It looks like a Haemangioma.

Detailed Answer:
As per your description, it looks like Haemangioma.
I prefer to excise the swelling surgically and send it for histopathological examination ( Biopsy ). Exact diagnosis will be confirmed .
Another mode of treatment for Haemangioma is Sclerotherapy. An Injection is given into the swelling which shrinks it.
Please consult a Surgeon , get examined clinically .
Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
