Hi thanks for the query.
From the information you had given your kid must had a soft tissue injury on the thigh, which resulted in bruise. Regarding the knot under the bruise it could be some minor tear in the muscle which could have fibrosed or condensed haematoma (hardening of blood). I suggest you to consult local orthopedician to rule any other issue.
