Football injury. Found painful lump

Ian (taken off net)

About a week of so ago I had an exteremely heavy blow to the coccyx while playing football. The impact was not from behind but from underneath, thus hitting the coccyx from the base of the spine. I am using Ibruprofen for the pain and as an anti-inflamatory which seems to just about take the edge off the pain, but my problem is this: I have discovered a small lump just to the left of the anus that is quite painful when pressure is applied and am wondering if anyone has any experience or idea what this could be.
