Dropped a heavy weight on my forearm / Big Bruise & Lump

i dropped a heavy weight on my forearm and it got a big bruise the same day and a strange lump followed a day later, it doesn't hurt or anything but its been there for a week, are big lumps normal like that?

I Guess....
I guess a lump like that is usual for a blunt-trauma injury like that. But I still think you should ice it to make sure ur bone doesn't have some sort of funny swelling that solidifies into a permanent bump in ur bone.
