Swelling and lump in eye. Do i need to worry ?

I got punched in the side of my right eye and it caused some swelling and bruising throughout my whole eye and the side of it near my temple. Its been 7 days and the swelling is gone and the bruising is also going away but ive developed a lump on the side of the eye where I was hit. Is this dangerous?

Thanks for query,
You might have shown to eye surgeon when you got swelling and bruise in the eye it may cause serious problem in eye.
At present you are having lump near eye may be due to hematoma.
There might be some infection.Go for antibiotic course and anti inflammatory medicines.
It is better take eye sp. opinion as there might have some problem in the eye.
ok and bye.
