Thanks for the query.

I have gone through your query.You seem to be most probably having a hematoma over the area of fall in the left buttock.

Sometimes a pool of blood collects within damaged tissue, forming a lump over the injury resulting in hematoma.

Meanwhile you could follow the following remedies:

1. Rest the injured area from further harm.

2. Apply ice wrapped in a clean cloth (Remove ice after 20 minutes).

3. Lightly compress the area. Do not massage the injured area.

4. You could take mild painkillers like Tablet.Tylenol twice a day after food for 2 days.

If you suspect an underlying injury, such as a fracture of the spine or pelvis it is better to XXXXXXX a physician and evaluate the extent of injury.

Hope I have answered your query.I will be available for follow up queries.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
