Bruising in shin after fall, bump underneath skin. Should I be concerned?

Hi, I fell off a stationary bike at the gym almost 2 months ago and my whole inner thigh and legs were extremely brusied and hurt to touch for over 2 weeks. But now 2 months later, all bruising gone except lower shin area. It is still very visible and a bump is underneath the skin. should i be concerned. It no longer hurts just unsightly and worrisome with bump underneath.

Thanks for posting your query.

This bump over lower shin might be due to fibrosis occur at the bruise area.

Give hot fomatation to the area, it will weans off gradually.

In case it get tender and warm, consult your doctor for examination.
