Injury on buttocks due to fall, severe swelling, hard painful lump. Treatment?

Hi, my husband was working on a big diesel truck today and when he stepped down from it onto a short wood stool the stool kicked out and he fell then the stool came back around and he fell into the leg of the stool which ended up being in the right side of his butt. Now it is swelled up twice is normal size and has a hard lump and painful. Just wondering what he should do?
