I fell down slippery step hitting on my hips. Nothing

I fell down slippery step hitting on my hips. Nothing seems to be broken and I applied ice and took ibuprofen for several days while resting laying in bed or on couch. 3 weeks later I still have a LARGE bump on the muscle , no pain, but the bump has not gone down completely and is solid feeling. Should I apply heat to the area? The bruising has almost dissapred.

I fell down 3 steps this morning, knocked the wind out of me, hit my head on the stairs and have a big bruise on my lower back. I have been sitting still with a heating pad on it. my upper back hurts around towards the front near ribs but not in the front of my body. having shortness of breath but not sure if it from that or my cold . I feel jittery and really tired.

My 1 year old son fell down the front porch (3 steps) and hit his head audibly hard on the cement below. He cried for nearly an hour after that and was inconsolable, and developed a rather large bump over/behind his left ear. Once he calmed down he ate his dinner fine, was alert, ran around normally, giggled and babbled like normal. I am still a little concerned about a possible skull fracture. Are my worries unfounded, or should I see a doctor tomorrow (he s down for the night now)?
