Unlikely: If you fell on the same elbow , you could have injured the bursa (a small sac of fluid ). This can result in traumatic bursitis, and will require a little time to heal. A hard lump is not uncommon as it heals and should resolve in a few weeks. If it persists, becomes red, painful or enlarges then you should seek medical care . ...Read more
