Banged the area just below knee cap hard, swollen, painful. What happens to the bone ?

I banged the area just below my knee cap hard last Friday and it swelled right up and was painful to walk; is now not painful to walk but kneeling still hurts; it never black and blued, is still a little swollen, appears that it is right on the bone area, what happens to a bone like that that is hit? Blood pools to a bone injury? Should I get it checked out? I iced it for a few days but am doing nothing now.

the problems you have may be only due to the ligamentous injury but not the symptoms of a fracture as you cant even stretch the leg and bruise is also present in that case.But still you need to consult your doctor for an x-ray and for clinical tests done by them to know about the ligamentous injury.The swelling will take some time to reduce so dont worry about it.If there is more pain take tab.zerodol.Thank you.
