Chin injury, bruise due to fall, hard lump, swelling, pain on pressing. Treatment?

Hello, I fell a few days ago and hit one side of my chin . I noticed a bruise , but no lump. Now the bruising is almost gone, but there is a hard lump where it was bruised. It doesn t hurt, only when I press on it. I am assuming it s just swollen and not any kind of fracture . How long will it take to heal? And can I do anything to make it heal quicker? It s only about 1/4 - 3/8 at the most

Thanks for posting your query

It might be a soft tissue injury over your chin

Hard lump present over it might be organised haematoma.

If swelling & tenderness present, you need x-ray to rule out fracture.
