Probable Injury: If you have had this for only a short period of time, it may simply be an injury – even if you don’t remember one. If so, it should resolve in a week or two. Try to avoid any more injury to the area while it’s healing. If it worsens or doesn’t seem to be improving, I would have it checked.
