Can still be normal.: What you've described is a normal process of a bruise. If the lump in the center has fluid inside and is increasing in size then she must see a doctor to evaluate this lump. I need to see a picture of it in order to definitely say it's just a bruise and not to worry. It's best to monitor for change in size and the amount of discomfort/ pain.
