Thanks for writing to us.
The pain and lump is likely to be due to a soft tissue injury in the area that has caused a hematoma formation. This usually subsides in 2-3 weeks on rest and doing a cold compress.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM. It is very unusual to have pain at the site of one year old injury. The feeling of a lump at the site of injury could be a Hematoma which might have organised producing a hard consistency. It might be causing pressure over the adjacent soft tissues causing pain.
I suggest you to undergo an MRI scan, which will show up all the soft tissue lesions. Hope this helps
