Swollen leg after hitting, area is numb. Anything to worry ?

Hello I hit my leg a week ago and it immidiately got very swollen, and I ve since then had a wound as well as a sort of lump (from the swelling ) on the side. However the thing that worries me is that part of the area is numb, and has been ever since I hit it. It feels awkward touching it, as if I ve gotten anesthesia on the area. Should I go see a doctor or will it go away? Thank you
