Dr. Shruti Rijhwani MD

No it needs evaluation as it is still swollen if not treated you may develop deformity.

Dr. Grzegorz Stanko MD

Most common injury of this area is ankle sprain. It may give symptoms for few weeks. You should have some rest and do not overload this limb. If the calf is painful and swollen, veins thrombosis should be ruled out.

Dr. Grzegorz Stanko MD

The lumps can indicate hematoma or even veins thrombosis. If the calf is hard and swollen, consult general surgeon.
