If size & symptoms: It is possible that you developed some scar tissue in the area, I would advise you see your primary care physician if it increases in size, changes color, painful, or warm to the touch.

No: It takes a long time for these injuries to heal. You might have even nicked the bone but there is nothing to be done. Be patient. It will heal.
