Hello ,

Thanks for posting your query

You had injury over your leg and after that it is swollen & tender to touch.

It might be a soft tissue injury or a fracture.

So you first need a x-ray to rule out any fracture.

You have to visit an orthopaedic surgeon for clinical exam. & treatment plan acc. to that.
