swollen and bruised like tongue

The tip of my tongue swelled and formed a pool of blood underneath and it looked like a deep bruise on the top of my tongue. I felt a knot where the swelling appeared. There was NO injury to my tongue and it wasn't a food allergy. (I ate the same things later that day and nothing happened) Within 4 hours the swelling was gone and within 24 hrs the blood disappeared. I have no pain or sensitivity when eating or drinking not at the time that this appeared nor afterwards.
Should I be worried?
