Thanks for posting your query.

According to description it seems to be soft tissue injury or ligament injury.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination.
In the interim,apply ice packs to the affected area, elevate the limb , give compression by crepe bandage but not to tight.
He can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid putting weight and rest well.

Wishing you good health
