Bruising on left shin, small lump on the anterior of my leg, no pain on walking. Cure?

Hi, I bruised my left shin almost 19 months ago, and not only did the remainder of the bruise not go away, but the shin and parts of the ankle are still sore to the touch. I don t have any pain walking or flexing my ankle, but when I look at my shin it seems there is still a small lump on the anterior of my leg. What is going on?

Thanks are writing to HCM

You are concerned about swelling but you don't have,clinical examination is must in your case to find out the cause.
X-ray of shin bone AP/Lateral view should be taken to know the nature of swelling ,whether it is bony or not.
Don't worry and consult your orthopaedician.

Take Care
