The fact that it doesn't hurt is good, but not an indicator as to just what it is. It could be soft tissue in nature or bone in origin. An exam by a competent physician should be able to make the call in no time. ...Read more

Yes, but.....: A painful bump from trauma is usually a good reason to get checked by your doctor or urgent care. However, a presumed fracture that is 3 weeks old has likely "partially" healed.
