    Weird hip injury after accident?

    I had a accident at the end of last season have I took a turn fast and my rear tire slipped. I got some decent road rash along with a contunsion to my hip (I believe it was a contunsion but never got it checked). 2 months after I noticed some fluid under the road rash, so went to the doctor. They told me it was probally from the rash still healing and would go away.

    Well its been a couple months since that and now theirs what feels like a hard line under the skin. It is like muscel but in a long line about 3cm wide and a couple inches long. Is this dead tissue, or possibly something else? Anyone had similar problems? or should I just go to the doctors.

    Also it does not seem to effect walking, running or cycling cause I have been playing soccer and riding fine.

    Could be a hematoma: clotted blood from the injury surrounded by muscle tissue. I had one on my hip after 20' a fall at work years ago and it took months to go away.

    Well if its a clot, then I assume I should be going to the doc ASAP?
