During soccer, I crashed knee on knee with an opponent. This caused a muscle contusion that has healed now. However, there is a small hard bump on the spot that has been hit. It does not hurt when walking or during activity, but sometimes after, it does feel sensitive. Is it something to watch out for? Kindly help.
How many days did it take to heal, and what medicines did you take? Even though there is only a hard bump, it needs to be reduced; otherwise, in the future, it might start to pain when there is some jerk or hit somewhere. I would suggest applying an ice pack thrice a day for a week. Also, do knee strengthening exercises for both knees and stretching before starting any activity.
I hope this helps.
