hard swelling on top of foot

A Gallon of vinegar in plastic rolled out of the car and dropped on my left foot as I was getting out of the car about a month ago. It hurt but I didn't realize there was swelling and black and blue until I took a bath (I am 75)so did not have chance to apply ice immediately. I have been able to walk but my foot swells as a result and there is a hard reddish lump about
an inch and a half in from my big toe at a slant- it doesn't feel like a bone. Am not able to get to a doctor easily and wonder if it is dangerous not to do
anything immediately. Thank you. Eileen Wilson
