Knots under my chin that is getting bigger without any pain

I fell and hit my chin on the hardwood floor about 4-5 months ago. It bruised and was sore but eventually went away. It has stayed slightly swollen (not visibly) like scar tissue but in the last week 2 hard knots have come up in the same area. Again not visible or painful but they seem to be getting bigger. Could this be serious?

Dear ,
i think u have got post traumatic scar? ,haematoma?,keloid ?.
its not serious as such but u should show it to dermatologist/surgeon.
treatment is better when scar is in young stage.
Intra lesional steroid can be given if its keloid.
best of luck.
