Possible abdominal hernia?

I was trying to train my little Jack Russell to run next to me while I rode my bike. But he bolted after a bird and caused me to fall off the bike putting the handlebars directly into my lower right abdomen. I had a HUGE bruise and now there is a bump under where the bruise is healing. This bump hurts when I touch it. Do you think it is just a hematoma? Or could it be a hernia? If it is a hematoma, I just need some time to let the thing heal...but a hernia (which I pray its not) will be more complicated, I think.

Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thank you.
