Bruised painful lump on the shin after a fall. What is the treatment?

Hi! I m a gymnast, and at one of my competitions I fell off the beam and hit my shin pretty hard. It immediately swelled up. This happened about a week ago, and it s still just as swollen as when it happened. It s just like a huge lump on my shin, and all around it it is bruised. It s painful to touch and put any pressure on that leg. Any suggestions?

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that there might be big hematoma after injury.
Go for ice pack application for 10 minutes 2-3 times a day.
Go for antibiotic medicine medicine as there is a chance of having infection on the part.
If require go for x-ray shin of tibia to rule of any injury to bone tibia.
Ok and bye.
