Shin Injury: Left shin bump. Blue bruises on left foot.


Q: While playing soccer more than a week ago, I was kicked hard on my left shin. It immediately swelled up and a bump formed on my shin (leaning to the left side) . I iced it & did RICE. It took an hour for the pain to go away & all that was left was a bump, about 3 inches wide. It's been two weeks and that bump is still there. It is tender at touch and feel numb. I've noticed that I have what seems to be bluish bruising in the ankle area on my left foot and I was not injured near that area, could this be related to it? And is it normal to still have a huge bump on my shin after 2 weeks?
