I've been having bruise like pain in my upper legs on the outsides but there is no bruise. Has nothing to do with physical activity. ?

Hit my upper leg on edge of table very hard a month ago. Had a huge bruise and pain but it's gone.now I touch & feel a hard lump under skin. Hematoma?
WeAllTakeOurLumps: Yes, it could be what remains of a hematoma under the skin. That lump could be there for a few months but the body absorbs most or all of it. Nothing dangerous.
