Thanks for posting your query.

From description it seems to be soft tissue injury or ligament injury.

You need an x-ray to rule out any bony injury.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.

Meanwhile, you can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid putting weight and rest well.
