Upper hip hurt after skating on ice, painful lump. What can heal sooner?

Hi there, I fell on my upper hip whilst ice staking a week ago. There was an instant winding pain at the time and now there is a painful lump after the bruising has gone down. Can you please tell me if this will go down naturally and if I should seek further help or is this normal after a fall on that area. It s the upper front right bone of the hip

Thanks for posting your query.

From description it seems to be soft tissue injury . Painful lump might be due to haematoma formation(collection of blood).

You need an x-ray to rule out any bony injury.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.

Meanwhile you can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid putting weight and rest well.

Wishing you good health...
