Lump on the inside of the knee after a game. Have swelling on the knee. How will this lump go away?

Hi, I have a large lump on the inside of my knee which result from a clash of knees while playing soccer. Initially there was a lot swelling to the knee and lower leg. It has been over a week since the injury occurred, and whilst the swelling has mostly come down, I am left with a large hard lump on the inside of my leg. Could you please advise what this lump could be and how I can treat it. Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks for writing to us.
The large hard lump on the inside of your knee is likely to be due top a hematoma formation. This can happen due to a soft tissue injury in the area or a bone injury. An MRI will help you best in identifying the type of injury you have suffered.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
