Got a lumps under skin after an accident

(I am a 20 year old male with no serious medical history .) A heavy cart fell onto my arm a couple weeks ago. During the week after, I had a huge bruise on my inside forearm but then after it cleared up, two lumps appeared just under my skin . There s no pain and no discoloration. I m wondering if they were caused by the cart falling on me and/or if they are something threatening. Will they just go away with time?

About 3 weeks ago I fell down the stairs. I ended up with a huge bruise and some swelling just above my elbow. The swelling eventually went after about 4 days and the bruise has now gone altogether but I have a hard invisible lump about 1 inch across under the skin . Should I get this looked at or will it go away on its own?

I fainted a week ago and landed on the last step on the stairs, bumped my chin badly, bruising very bad but slowly going. Just noticed that it s sore in a particular area and feels like a lump under the skin that can move slightly. It s the only sore area left.
