I tripped and hit my arm on the doorknob this morning. A knot roughly the size of a medium egg formed immediately below the inner bend of my elbow. I iced the area off and on all morning. there is no apparent brusing and so far the area is not painful. Should I see a doctor for this?
Hi--do you have full movement of the elbow without any cracking?

Yes I do.

OK--without any pain or bruising, and with full movement of the joint without any problems, then it's highly unlikely you've fractured anything. Unless you start getting pain and bruising, no need to see a doctor about this. It may take several days for the swelling to resolve
