Well, any testicle swelling should be checked, that is for sure. Although you seem to be too young for developing cancer, it doesn’t have to mean that you shouldn’t be cautious.
The cancer usually develops in men aged 19 to 35 but it is said that any swelling should be checked by an urologist.
Have your parents seen the swelling? Not every swelling is cancer. There are different cysts that may form either inside the scrotum (the sac that holds the testicle) or on top of epididymis, a tube that lies on testicle inside the scrotum.

These cysts are usually harmless and don’t have to be removed but they should at least be checked.

The lump you felt could also be just an anatomical bump because the scrotum and testicle are not just oval with clear surface. This tube (epididymis) that lies on top and at the back of the testicles is pretty lumpy and you could be feeling one of these lumps as well.

You should talk openly to your parents, show them what you think is the swelling and say whether you would want to have it checked or not.
