Hi Andri,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Swelling that appears on the shin after the impact can be mild or dangerous. The cause of this swelling can be due to edema (seepage of interstitial fluid), hematoma (blood clot under the skin), or also injury to other components in it, for example a fracture, and so on. It could also, swelling occurs due to infection of the skin (abscess) or bone (osteomyelitis) after injury.


Depending on the severity of the cause of the swelling, this condition may resolve in a short time, but it can last for weeks. To be sure, it requires a direct physical evaluation by a doctor, or is also assisted by supporting tests, such as X-rays, CT scans, and so on.


Have you had your complaints checked after injury? What are the results of the doctor's examination?


If you have never checked your complaint to a doctor before, it's good to have your complaint checked with your doctor at this time. That way, you can find out what is the cause of the appearance of a hard swelling on your shin, whether it is dangerous, or not. It is also possible that this swelling appears not solely due to injury, but due to other factors, for example variations in the shape of the bone congenital (congenital), bone tumors, and so on.


In the meantime, avoid pressing or reducing the swelling that appears as long as it hasn't been declared safe by the doctor. Use comfortable and soft pants so as not to irritate your shins. Do not forget, avoid your lower leg from repeated injuries, for example by using special protective equipment when exercising.


Hope this helps ..
