Bruised lump below knee after getting hurt. Is it possible to have bruised the bone?

Last night in my acting class and we were putting furniture back in the stock room, which at one point I banged the corner of the wooden table right below the knee , there is a small little bump but it does still hurt. I took an Aleve this morning as well as iced it last night once I got home. Is it possible to have bruised my bone/tibia? Should I see a doctor? Or is it a bruise that ll heal with time?

it sounds like you have a haematoma which is a small collection of blood that forms under the skin following an injury like this. the knee and shin are particularly prone to this. the lump often persists for a number of weeks although the associated pain should settle more quickly. there is no specific management other than antinflammatory medication for the pain and rest.
