Thanks for posting your query

You had injury over your shin below the knee and aft er that swelling appears and it is tender to touch.

So it might be a soft tissue injury or a fracture.

You need an xray to rule out any fracture.

You have to visit an orthopaedic surgeon for exam of knee and leg and treatment plan according to that.
