Bruise that won't go down

About two weeks ago I hit my shin on a metal bench and got a bruise. The bruise wasn't your normal bruise and didn't color up. I'm used to this since I will get hit a lot but don't get a bruise. Anyways my shin has a hard bump on it now that feels like it is part of my bone now. Please help. The bump won't go down.

Could be a calcified nodule, I got one once on my shin from hitting it hard, the doctor removed it and all was fine. I would certainly see a doctor to have it checked.
