Thanks for writing to us.
From your description, it seems that there might be a minor bony injury- maybe a hair line fracture causing a hematoma in the area. You need to get the X-ray of the area done for proper diagnosis. Icing the area till then will help.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
