Painful Lump in back of Thigh

Hi all. About a week ago, I noticed a large swelling on the back of my thigh. It was painful. It appeared all of a sudden. It was about the size of a acorn. I spent the night massaging it cuz I was freak out about it. It reduced in size over night, but in the morning, I had a huge area of bruise. I went to the doctor, he said it was a ruptured blood vessel. But for some reason I don't feel comfortable with that explanation. He just looked at it, poked it a couple times and came to that conclusion. Any ideas as to what this is? I didn't do anything abnormal that day. And now it's about a week later and the bruise is vaguely present, almost gone, but the lump is still there. It's much smaller, but it's still painful. Any thoughts would be very much appreciated. Thanks
