lump in hamstring area about level with stifle, not lame but also has curb?

Hi, pls read maybe you recognise a condition or injury. I am particularly baffled by the large lump which hasn't changed in a week or more.

I moved my horse to a paddock a few months ago and she was doing ok.

About more than a week ago her near hind fetlock was swollen and had wind galls.
a week after that I noticed her hock joint on the same leg was tender on the inside. and she had a large swelling in the hamstring area (as big as you can cup your hand over it) and the bump is lumpy and veiny looking. position is about level with the stifle joint.
I think the lump and hock was probably a problem when I only noticed the swollen fetlock.

So a week after that the swelling has gone down and the hock is almost not sore but is getting semi hard skin over it I think it is a curb?

(description of curb from web
Inflammation on the upper rear of the cannon area just below the point of the hock
Caused by: Bang or blow the back of the leg - possibly from kicking the wall. Stress and trauma from a violent extension of the Plantar Ligament. )
but it was on the inside and happened along with the fetlock and lump ??

she is not lame at all and her movement doesn't seem to be affected at all
she is about 2 yo and unbroken and not worked

any ideas on what it is or what to do about it is much appreciated
