Thanks for posting your query.

Since the bruise around your knee is painful, a bone injury is likely. You need to get an X-ray of the area done. MRI is the best investigation to diagnose the internal knee joint structures injury.

So you need to get checked out .

Till then avoid weight bearing on the knee and keep the leg elevated on two pillows.
