There is a Lump On my Chin Area From A Hard Blow, What Could it Be?

I had a hard blow to my lower lip and chin area 1 week ago. My mouth was cut from the inside by my teeth. It seems to be healing, but there is a hard lump where the blow was at. Any suggestions on what this is or how to make it go away?\

There could be several reasons why you have this bump.  You may have bruised the area and that could be a possible hematoma.  You may have disrupted the jaw bone.  A set of x-rays would not be a bad idea and might be necessary to determine why you have the bump.  A visit to your general doctor might also be an option.   Good Luck!
