Bruises in leg, increasing, purples lines. Will I be okay?

I was in the leg with a ball during a game of ball hockey on Tuesday. It began to bruise immediately (as expected) but since then it seems to have increased in size from the size of a hockey ball to about the size of a volley ball. Overnight three purple lines developed through the bruise, but not at the impact site. Should I be concerned, or is it just a bad colorful bruise?

Thank for choosing HCM, Just keep eye on it it must be blood collection beneath skin, the size of swelling you stated here is uncommon, so looking to this just take care of it and if possible go to surgeon to rule out the other injury part, like bone injury, vascular injury, legalement injury,, Have nice day
