Lump on forearm, no trauma, purple bruise

Four days ago, I experienced a sudden, large egg-size lump on my forearm , having experienced no trauma whatsoever. My Dr never looked at it, but instructed me to ice and ace- bandage it. It did diminish, somewhat, however , my arm is EXTREMELY bruised in a large area, very purplish-red from elbow almost to wrist . Still have a lump, but not nearly as large.
