How To Remove Hard Bump And Stiffness Caused After Hurting Shin?

Hi, during gym class, my friend accidentally kicked me in the shin. It did hurt a bit but the pain went away pretty quickly and it left behind a bruise, which was expected. However, most of the bruising has gone away and there is a bump near my shin that is hard. It isn t painful when I touch it. It just feels hard and stiff. Any ideas and/or suggestions? Thank you.

Hello thank you for writing us here.
Its normal after injury like that. There's nothing to worry about. It would go in 3 or 4 weeks. You can tie a bandage around it if you want. Such injuries causes bruises which usually go in 2 weeks and swelling in 3 or 4 weeks.
God bless you

Best regards,
