Warm compresses to the area will result in early resolution of the issue. Good luck. ...Read more

Hematoma: Sometimes, after an injury to a bone there can be bleeding under the bone membrane (periosteum). The resultant hematoma will sometimes calcify and form a lump. As the blood breaks down, the hematoma can absorb water and enlarge. You should consider having it checked out by your doctor if it continues to bother you. ...Read more

Bump is hematoma: The large lump is a common normal response to an injury over the tibia from blunt trauma. The bony lining or periosteum is very vascular and thus can bleed significantly leading to a local hematoma. The swelling should start to subside with rest, ice, decreased use and an ace wrap to provide compression and protection. ...Read more
