Hi and welcome to HCM

After going through the entire description it seems to be soft tissue injury . Lump in calf might be due to haematoma formation(collection of blood).
You need an x-ray to rule out any bony injury.
I suggest you to consult your doctor for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.Beside icing and elevating it, you can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation.

Hope this will helps you. Take care.

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Based on the description, you could have sustained a minor soft tissue hematoma owing to the blunt injury. All other symptoms and signs that are mentioned in the description are a part of the normal inflammatory response. All of these will settle down within 2-3 weeks spontaneously.

Just use intermittant moist heat fomentation over the affected area. If you are still concerned and worried, approach your family physician.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
