I got lump after a huge bruise

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?

Hello friend.
As you had history of trauma followled by swelling, the swelling you are having is hematoma.
You should not worry about it. It will gradually go away.
