Child hurt foot on trampoline. Has lump on side of foot and is limping. Treatment?

My daughter hurt her foot on a trampoline. Lost her footing and landed wrong on it. She went down immediately and was crying in pain. She wasn t able to move it right away but after we calmed her down she was able to walk and jump again. But then she started limping and I noticed a lump on the side if her foot. She is still limping about 6 hours later nd I m not sure if I should get her checked out or not.

Pediatrician 's  Response
She has suffered an ankle sprain an injury due to injured or partially torn ankle ligament. A ligament is the fibrous tissue that connects bones to other bones.
X ray in ankle sprain will most likely be normal.
The treatment of ankle sprain in immediate phase is RICE (Rest, local Ice application, Compression & Elevation)
You can give her brufen junior syrup in appropriate dose if she has no history of ibuprofen allergy.
You can consult orthopedician on an non urgent basis.
