Can be hematoma or muscle tear.
Thanks for posting your query.
The persistent swelling in the area can be due to a hemtoma formation in the area or the bulging muscle mass due to tear in the fascia. This can be properly diagnosed after an MRI scan. Proper rest is needed for it to heal. You need to avoid all the painful activities and get it examined by an orthopedician so that proper treatment can be initiated.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
