knot on sternum

I had a hard fall forward and hit my chest and now, 2 weeks later, I have a knot on my chest and dull pain when breathing or exercising.  The swollen part seems to be on the sternum bone right between my breasts and when I try to sleep on my side it wakes me up with pain.  What kind of doctor should I go to....I did go and have 2 x-rays done at the hospital and apparently they saw nothing, although they were mainly of my shoulder.

Your regular physician should be able to help you.  I am not sure if you have a hematoma on your sternum related to the fall.  Is the area bruised?
