Brief Answer:
Consult your doctor for examination.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

From description it seems to be soft tissue injury. You need an xray to rule out any bony injury.
I suggest you to consult your doctor for examination.
Meanwhile do icing, elevate the limb, take antiinflammatory drug like ibuprofen to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid putting weight and rest well.

Hope this helps you. Let me know if you have any more concerns.

Warm regards.
