Dear sir /madam
If I were your treating doctor since you history of injury.
I would examine your leg for local bony tenderness, and then take the radiograph of the part to look for fracture.



For contusion it is recommended to rest the part, ice fomentation and some analgesics,
And assess again after 1 week
