Bruised leg with pain after falling. Dent in the shin. What kind kind of doctor should I consult?

Hi, i had taken a bad fall about 6 weeks ago and was bruised all over my leg. There was only bruising pain, nothing felt broken or torn. Now 6 weeks later, the bruising is gone, but I have a dent in my left shin where the biggest bruise was and a hard bump. Not sure what kind of doctor I should go see or what kind of damage happened?

Welcome to HCM,
After 6 weeks if you got dent on your shin of tibia, chances of having osteomyelitis is there.
Go for x-ray shin of tibia and rule out any infection.
Consult Orthopedic surgeon and get examined.
Ok and bye.
