I got a bruise on my shin during soccer, it has a soft spot almost like there is fluid in it but no discoloration. Should I go to have it checked out ?

Hi Heather ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Yes please get it checked by a doctor as it is due to injury & it will always carry some risk of infection.So a preventive check up is necessary if there is nothing to worry then you can relax.Take care.
