Brief Answer: Get it evaluated by your doctor. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. If after fall there is increase tenderness(painful to touch) in the area and it become painful to stand, then there is possibility of soft tissue or bony injury. I suggest you to get it evaluated by your doctor and go for xray to rule out any bony injury. Meanwhile avoid putting weight and rest well. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care
