Slipped off from stairs. Had a swell. Its not red or anything. Concerned?

i am just wondering last night i slipped off a stair climber machine and banged the lower part of my leg pretty good within an hour it swelled up bigger than a golf ball and today it is still a little swollen and it looks like a dent above it where i hit going down i also have a small cut there to but it is not red or anything and it never bled so i am hoping you can advise whether i should get this checked out as it took most of all night to get the majority of the swelling down with ice packs
