Thank you for asking

If no trauma history or no visible change or pain in the ankle then it needs a little assessment. Arthroscopy and a complete ankle examination by an orthopaedic surgeon is advised. It might be nothing but there is no harm in getting evaluated. ANkle anatomy needs to be addressed here and correlated clinically.

Take care.
