Fell and hit right cheek, with huge bruise and tenderness. Dent in the middle of buttock. Suggestion?

I am a 53 year old woman who fell on some slippery steps at the beach. I landed HARD on my rear end...not the tailbone...but the right cheek took the brunt of the fall. After a really HUGE bruise coming and going, along with extreme tenderness, all that was left of the fall was a dent in the middle of the buttock, and a lumpy place just above the dent. It started hurting again 2 days ago, although the even occurred in August. What s going on?

It seems that you are having huge hematoma on the buttock.
If you have problem for walking or painful movement at the joint, possibility of fracture of thigh bone or at hip joint is common at this age.
Go for x-ray of hip joint and rule out fracture or crack.
Apply ice pack 3-4 times a day.
Go for antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicine courses.
Ok and take care.
