Shin bone injury, bruise on ankle, discomfort, itching. Hairline fracture?

I tripped into shower 2 weeks ago and banged my shin bone on metal bar I thought I had broken my leg and needed to put a bag of peas on it so that the muscle which had dented upwards would go down. The bruise took a few days to really see and was huge down to my ankle. It is still uncomfortable and itchy! Somtimes worse if I have walked alot. Could I have a hairline fracture?
