Injection Site Hard And Swollen For A Week Now

I’m not usually someone who panics about this issue because during my year of TRT I’ll occasionally get a bit of a swollen area from the injection and it’ll dissappear in about 3-4 days. This time however is different it has lasted a week and still isn’t even close to being gone (it think it’s gone down a bit since I first noticed it).
It’s not bruised or anything it’s just a hard swollen lump on my glute (feels like a huge knot) that very mildly hurts when I apply pressure onto it.

Should I be worried and get to the doctors?

If it’s not hot to the touch and doesn’t hurt without poking at it, it’s most likely just fine. It happens, it’ll go away.

Probably hit the lymphatic system. If its not red and irritated then it should not be infected, but you never know, I would give it 3 or so more days and if it gets worse during that period probably wanna have it checked, if it starts to get better then no worries.
