Bruise after thigh injury. Hard lump under skin. No pain when walking. How long to go away?

Hi, someone punched me in my thigh 3 days ago and I have a bruise from it. The bruise is about 1.5 inches in diameter and I can feel something hard underneath. It s like it has a lump underneath but it s not bumpy. It does not hurt to walk, but if I touch the bruised area or press on it it hurts. Will the lump go away on its own and how long does it go away?
