Injury on inner side of right shin, numbness, movable lump, fluid-filled bump. Treatment?

Hi, I was playing rugby about a month ago and I got a really hard knock to inner side of my right shin. It turned pale white straight away and was numb to touch. I tried to run a week later but it was too painful and I could feel the lump moving. The pain has gone now but it has left a large noticeable hard fluid like lump where the bruise was.

Hello,

Symptoms are suggestive of hematoma at the site of bruise.Hematomas liquefy after sometime. A clinical evaluation and sonography can help to confirm this. If its large in size, it might need drainage.

Regards.
