Well, shame on you ... sorry, just joking and I hope you had a good time, even if you don't recall all of it.  Now seriously; a bruise is caused by bleeding in the tissues beneath the skin. Just because the surface bruise is no longer visible there could very well be a hematoma remaining in the tissue. This will be absorbed but it may take a considerable amount of time. The hematoma would be the "lump" you describe.  Take care now and please forgive me for making the joke ......
