Injury to left forearm, large hard bump, along radius and ulna. Fractured or splintered bone?

I fell hard on my LEFT forearm/side last week, the bruises have begun to fade, but a large bump remains - should I be worried? the bump is long and pretty hard, it s along the path of my radius and ulna, on the underside of my forearm, I still have full mobility, but the bump hurts to the touch still, I just want to ensure this couldn t be a fractured or splintered bone.

Thanks for posting your query.

You had injury over your left forearm last week and swelling still present and tender to touch.

This seems to be soft tissue injury but clinical exam of forearm and x-ray is needed to rule out any fracture.

so you have to visit an orthopaedic surgeon for exam & treatment plan acc. to that.

Hope I have answered your query.
