When I walk or hobble my leg gives way and goes all weak. I have rub arnica on it and taken some nurofen as that is all i had. Should i put ice on it?

The lump is likely to be hematoma.You can apply ice, but this needs clinical evaluation and sonography.

Take oral analgesic for pain and to reduce swelling.
