Arm injury. Bruise, blackish blue discolouration, swelling, lump. Blood clot formation?

I bumped my hard really hard while moving furniture. It was very painful and the entire top of my hand bruised black and blue. I told Advil for the pain and it is 10 days later and the swelling and bruising has gone away----except that there is a small lump at the site. It is blueish, hard and hurts a little. Should I be worried about a blood clot of some type

Thanks for writing to hcm.
You may be having a residual clot. But do not worry , it should gradually disappear.
If there is pus coming out or if it increases in size or the skin over it becomes red again, you might need antibiotics and antiseptics .
Otherwise it should go off soon.
