bruise turned red

I had fallen and had a large bruise on my calf the bruise is going away and now I have a red lump in its place. Is this normal?

No please go have it looked at, it may be forming a cellulitus or an abscess which can lead to a nasty infection. You may need antibiotics. This sometimes happens with an injury and an immune response. Best to have it looked at by your doctor.
