I am feeling pain just below my left ankle joint & there is a bit of swelling too. It's been 15-20 days, I have used heat therapy, cold therapy & taken some pain killers, but to no effect. My question is there might b chance of hair-line fracture or swelling in that part of the bone?

Our suggestion would be to do hot water fermentation along with Cold (ice) therapy. You shall also keep a pillow under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes.
