Brief Answer:
Seems to be SOFT TISSUE STRAIN

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for your query.

I have gone throgh the image provided, I feel that you might have sustained a SOFT TISSUE STRAIN involving your ligaments or tendons.

This will generally resolve within few weeks by the following measures -
* Rest to the injured part and dont involve in activities which puts additional strain on the injured tissues.
* Ice packing should be applied for about 20 minutes once in every 2 hours.
* Analgesic & anti inflammatory medications

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

Take care
