Ankle looking larger after having cuts while running. Matter of concern?

I hit the bone on the inside of my ankle on a rock while running a race today. It has a cut this is about 2 inches long and the ankle immediately swelled and now has a bruise . I have full movement of the anke and the pain is very minimal. The swelling has gone down but is still larger than the other ankle. Any thoughts? Should I be concerned?

My opinion is that you should rush to an ER( emergency room) soon. Get a first aid and tetanus injection for sure. Also get an X-ray of your foot done just to make sure there is no bone injury and also to avoid wound infection due to some foreign body in the wound.
