Ok that is helpful...
If there for a year that of course is a long time and that rules out any acute infection and not an injury type swelling ...
Perhaps it is a lipoma ( a benign type fatty growth )
I would suggest have an orthopedic specialist check it ...
Does it interfere with you walking at all ?
I hope that this is helpful for you ...
Let me know if you have further questions or discussion
