Thanks for your query.
black bruise over your hip and thigh is due to trauma and will be resolved in course of time.
Because of more trauma to your hip,there might have been blood collection(Haematoma) and it is looking like a tennis ball.Another possibility is a localised serous fluid collection which is due to damage of soft tissues.
Please avoid sleeping on the affected side for few days.
Nothing to worry.
Once your MRI report comes,your problem will be solved.
All the best.
Wish you speedy recovery
