Brief Answer:
Do not massage it.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for your query.

From description it seems to be soft tissue 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. Do not massage it. Beside icing and elevating it, you can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid lifting weight and rest well.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.

Take care
