Repeated ankle injury, lump formation. Need medical attention?

Hi I sprained my ankle around a month ago, I hit it on a spot on my ankle that had a chip in it from 6 years back from an untreated injury, i went to the ER a week after I did it and had a sony put on and I was supposed to follow up with an orthopedic surgeon but never did. My question is, when I first hit it it made a huge bumpy gash you could press in and move a few lumps around, now there is a hard lump over the spot?
