Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the lumps that you have on your ankle after trauma . This can be due to bruise or a hematoma formed under the skin due to the trauma.
Apply warm compresses and take some oral anti inflammatory analgesic after prescription. If the symptoms are severe then it is advisable to consult your doctor and get a CTscan/ MRI done.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
