Thank you for the query.

If it does not hurt while walking, no signs of fracture and the trauma was not strong this will probably wont need any medical attention. The bruise should go away by its own. You can put something cold on it and put your leg up what will let the swelling go away.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
