I was kicked in lower leg playing football and now it's swollen, bruised and painful? What should I do?

I recently received a similar injury. I tripped over a table that had been tipped on its side. It made a lump on my shin that looked like a golf ball was under my skin. It had me worried for days. It is finally dissipating. Really, its no big deal. Ice, ibuprofin and patience are all you need.

Rest, ice, compression and elevation. If you are worried or it doesn't get better, see a doctor and get it xrayed.
