Bruise on calf after fall, itchy lump. Needs to be looked at?

I had a fall on a set of concrete steps 2 months ago. The injury was on the outside of my lower calf . It was a deep bruise inside, barely on the surface. Since then, I have no pain in that area anymore, just a lump that itches like crazy. Is this something that I need to have looked at? I would have thought that the area would have been completely healed by now.

Thanks for writing to us.
If there is no pain on weight bearing and there are minimal color changes in the area, then the area is healing. The mild itching is not worrisome.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
