Bone Bruise

Following a traumatic injury, fluids and blood may accumulate and build up in and around the injured bone, leading to a condition known as bruised bone.

Soreness, pain, swelling, bruising on the skin, and a hard lump under the skin are commonly reported symptoms in the case of bone bruising.
