Trip to the doctor is indicated

Last week I slipped on some mud and badly hurt my arm.

There was a hell of a lump on my arm just above my elbow, so I visited A&E, had an X-Ray and was told it was not broken, but badly bruised. I was given some powerful NSAI tablets and sent on my way.

A week later the lump has not shown any significant decrease in size, so I am going to visit my doctor and have them take a look at it.

I'm not a doctor, nor do I portray one on TV, but it would be far from the first time an X-ray was misread or something was overlooked. Furthermore, significant problems beyond fractures can be present. I'm glad you're visiting your doctor.

Apparently it is a haematoma. And is gradually going down. But it still hurts when I knock it...
