Hi there My 5 year old slipped on her bunk

Patient : Hi there. My 5 year old slipped on her bunk bed ladder and hit her hip about a week and a half ago. A bruise formed that grew quickly over the first few days. She still has this bruise and it is deep purple with yellow inside and around it. It also feels like there's a hard lump under the skin, and it seems a bit swollen. It is tender to the touch. Is this pretty normal or is it something that should be evaluated further by a doctor? Thank you!
Symptoms:  Tender, swollen bruise
