Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the knot and without a diagnosis at hand it would be difficult to suggest a management plan. Possibilities that may need to be ruled out include fractures, dislocations, haematoma formation, muscle/ ligament/ tendon injuries etc. It would be best to have this evaluated by a primary care physician or an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis. Meanwhile I would suggest resting the leg. OTC NASIDS may be used for pain relief while vitamin C supplements may help in faster healing.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
