I suffered a hockey hit 57 days ago and injured my left knee . The bruising is still visible and quite purple, I ve notice a lump beneath the skin, it moves around and Is visible. I had fluid in my kneecap which I did not get drained, letting it drain itself, but now the pain is back and my knee gives out frequently and the lump is getting bigger.

Welcome to the forum.
From description , this lump most probably formed due to haematoma formation (collection of blood).
It will take few weeks to months to get disappear.
I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination of swelling. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.
Meanwhile give hot fomatation over it, You can take Tablet Motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily).
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
