Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
As the xrays have excluded a fracture
in the forearm, the pain and soreness along with the bump could be due to a soft tissue HEMATOMA
(blood clot). Nothing to worry as this will resolve spontaneously.
The initial management of the Hematoma is as follows -
* Rest to the injured part and dont involve in activities which puts additional strain on the injured tissues.
* Ice packing should be applied for about 20 minutes once in every 2 hours.
* Use elastic compression bandage around the swollen area
* Elevation of the limb
& anti inflammatory medications
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
