It could be a contusion only.

As of now, you can use analgesics/anti-inflammatory combination like aceclofenac/serratiopeptidase for symptomatic relief.

If symptoms persist better to consult an orthopedic and plan for an MRI.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
