Leg bruised, bump formed. Why is the bump still there?

I fell off a bunk bed three weeks ago. It was extremely painful and my leg landed hard on a chair sitting under it. I couldn t see for a few seconds and the pain went away after a few minutes. I have reall bad bruising on my leg but that went away within three weeks. The problem is I still have a large egg sized bump on my leg that doesn t hurt at all but you can move around under the skin. I don t think I could have torn anything but the bump hasn t gone down at all since I fell.

Thanks for posting your query.

From description , this large bump over your leg most probably formed due to haematoma formation which might get fibrosed or calcified.

It will take few weeks to months to get disappear.Apply hot fomatation over it, You can take Tablet Motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily).

If there is any redness, increased temperature and tenderness over swelling, consult your doctor to rule out infection.

Wishing you good health
