It might be a simple contusion or hematoma. As of now, you can use analgesics/anti-inflammatory combination like aceclofenac/serratiopeptidase for symptomatic relief.

You can also apply ice packs for symptomatic relief. If symptoms persist better to consult an orthopaedic and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Around 8 months ago I fell down some stairs and hit my leg between my knee and ankle. There was quite a bad bruise but now after so long there is still a viable bulge/lump. There is no difference in the colour of the skin compared to the rest of my leg. Until today it hasn t been painful, just visible, but I woke up this morning to a thumping pain and it hurts regardless of whether I m standing, sitting or lying down. It now has me in tears.

I had Blood clot on left leg several years ago. I had treatment. Last week I felt lump on calf on same leg. There was a little pain and tenderness and I have been elevating my leg. The swelling has gone down but lump is still noticeable. What does this mean?
