Thanks for posting your query,
From description it seems soft tissue injury
or ligament injury
.If proper immobilisation is not given at the time of injury, healing of tissue or ligament might get hampered. However it is best to rule out any bone injury
after an X-ray.
I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. You may get the X-ray/MRI
of the area affected under his/her guidance.
In the interim,apply ice packs to the affected area,anti-inflammatory drug like motrin
to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid lifting weight and rest well.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful
