Hi Naresh,
this condition called as gynecomastia, which may be due to many causes but many times during puberty many boys will develop the breast nodules which is normal, and dissappear with time. as you are 21 and still having swelling kindly get it examined by surgeon and if it is gynecomastia it can be treated surgically.
Take care
