Bump on my nose still there 2 months after injury?

I had an accident at the gym and a step (the kind you jump on) slammed me in the face, hitting my nose. My nose did not bleed and iced it that day. 2 months later, i STILL HAVE a bump on my nose that was never there before! Furthermore, I can tell my nose is still swollen, because eyeglasses leave 'indent' marks on my nose (not there when i wear my contacts.) Is there a chance this bump will subside in 4 months, or do i need a nose job? I am depressed- i had a perfect nose before this.

Hard to answer this without an exam to determine the anatomy present.
