Photo - is it damaged?

I was helping my sister move into her new flat and hit the back of my ankle against a shoe rack, it hurt like hell and I spent quite a long time swearing. I tried to hop it off but a month later and it's still aching, and there's a lump coming out of the back that feels bone like. 

Any ideas what's wrong?

I have a phobia of medical stuff, I know it's daft but I really don't want to go and get it seen to unless it really needs it. 

It aches all the time, even more so if i've been on it a while. When I first get up in the morning it's really stiff and hard to walk on, I wouldn't say painful but it feels odd.

    It most certainly looks damaged and you should 100% go see a doctor about it! And orthopedic specialist if possible.

    Hi Gotyu,

    I too have a phobia about anything medical!   I would agree with the other posters though.  I would definitely go see someone.  Good luck!  :-)

    Thanks for the advice. Last time I went to the doctors it took 3 weeks to get an appointment, I'll ring up and see what they can do.

      Gotyu, please keep us posted.  I sure hope everything works out great for you.  It may take a while and it can be a long road, but the good thing I've found is, there are wonderful people on this forum, who are so nice and encouraging.  That has helped me so much.  Just reading different posts.  I wish you the best.  :-)
