Lump after puncture wound

Common Questions and Answers about Lump after puncture wound


1448748_tn?1312959808 I developed tinnitus, hot flashes, numbness, nausea, and numbness after surgery from the after effects of the surgery itself and from the effects of the inflammation around the various surgical sites. After a while it started to settle down and many of these symptoms went away. As it healed and the skin around the wound tightened, my incision often felt like it had little lumps and knots etc. It was just how the incision healed and sometimes it was knots from muscle tension.
Avatar_n_tn Here, they shaved the side of her neck to look for any signs of a bug bite or puncture wound or bruising. They found none. They also checked her blood clotting times to rule out any type of poisoning. This checked out fine. They tried to get a "diagnosable" sample but apparently couldn't because of the swelling. They are concerned about a mast cell tumor but wouldn't operate because of the swelling increasing the risk of degranulation and proximity of major vessels.
Avatar_n_tn I think if it doesn't go away by Monday I will go back to the doctors. Is it normal to still be a large lump even after the drainage? Could it be cancer if it doesn't hurt?
Avatar_f_tn Stitching would require opening the skin to access the vein. It's much safer to allow the puncture wound to close up on its own. Stitching is an option however.
Avatar_f_tn Where the blood was drawn from there is like a tiny lump/puncture wound which had a scab on it for quite a long time. I got REALLY annoyed with this as some of my mates took the mick saying I'm a heroin addicted, so I picked the tiny scab off the other day. Surely this is not normal for a puncture wound to maintain appearance? Its nothing to do with me picking the scab as it was still there over a week after I had the blood drawn.
516285_tn?1211550990 Moderate bleeding went on for 3 days, then wound healed. Two days ago a large lump appered under the wound, growing in size all the time, though not at a fast rate, is now about size of goose egg and area is growing in size. Went back to vet "leave it alone" come back if it really is large. I am concerned, I'm off again to vet tonight. He doesnt seem to be in pain, and he is eating ok. Is the swelling normal after the trauma of a bite ??
Avatar_n_tn there is usually an underlying cause such as a puncture wound, a foreign object such as a grass seed in the ear, or most commonly allergies and secondary ear infections. The ear itch from allergies/infection causes the dog to shake his head and scratch his ear, creating the hematoma. If this is the case, then this is probably why the hematoma has recurred and he may go on to develop a hematoma in the opposite ear as well.
Avatar_n_tn Thank God for all of these commits as I know my enormous lump on my inner bikini line is not the parasite I thought it could be after returning from India OR some type of cancer that is eating away at precious necessities on my body! I go to the doctor next week hoping they will just cut it out.
Avatar_n_tn Here is the continuation of surfnsand247's original Tingling after Swine Flu Vaccine.
Avatar_f_tn I have 8 days to my 1st beta test after my ET on Aug 12. Out of 11 mature eggs only 4 fert after icsi and only 1 viable embryo. I too had OHSS after egg retrieval and am really hoping that this works. So far no signs of period coming so keeping fingers crossed. Does anyone know how many days after ET a period will come if it didn't work?
Avatar_n_tn I started feeling sick every morning (gagging but not vomiting) starting at about 10 days after the procedure. I was confirmed pregnant on day 14 after the procedure by blood test. I had the symptoms before I was confirmed positive and I also thought they were in my head, but there could be more to it. I had a failed IUI a few months before and I did not have any symptoms at all. Good luck!
162948_tn?1205256292 now am scared because I see that a lot of women have not been able to conceive after the mirena IUD removal... pls help!!! I have had it for 18 months and after all the crazy stories, I am thinking of having it removed :(.
Avatar_n_tn I found a lump on my right breast while breastfeeding my 8 months old baby. I went for a mammogram and the doctor told me to stop breastfeeding in order to do the biopsy. I breastfed all my babies and having problem giving the bottle to the baby. If I can, I never wants to give a formula to my baby. On top of that she is allergic to milk and soy . Any advice? Thanks.
Avatar_n_tn I was stung on the top of my foot by a stingray a couple of weeks ago in the Gulf in Florida- the pain from the puncture wound was bad, but the pain from the venom an hour later was excrutiating.
4628530_tn?1369112686 I go through days at a time of no open abscesses and little pain. A hard lump still exists and my right breast is noticeably smaller almost as if the tissue has been eaten away and I have many scars. I'm hoping these tips can help women new to the forum. INITIAL DIAGNOSIS/TREATMENT: I was given 3 types of antibiotics because the dr. believed it was mastitis that rarely occurs in pregnant women due to the milk ducts preparing to produce milk. I didn't have a fever, so it was not an infection.
Avatar_n_tn I'd just like to know if the tongue is more likely to scar than other body parts. Sort of like how a wound on the face bleeds WAY more than a wound anywhere else. What about scarring?
Avatar_f_tn I wouldn't take flintstone's description of what happened at the biopsy procedure too seriously. She has admitted on another thread to having untreated hepc for years and yet she still drinks to the point of blacking out. The "core biopsy" term does seem redundant. Flinstone, you can probably get your biopsy result tomorrow from your hospital's medical records department. Your next appointment is Dec.
Avatar_n_tn Some mild stinging as you inject 1cc. A little transient sting/ache for a couple minutes after, like any shot. ((About 5 hours later onset of some myalgias and then muscle stiffness. I prime myself with the tylenol, 1 hour before and 3 hours after. If I wake up in the night to pee, I take another dose. Early the next day still a little soreness (like I had worked out). If I forget the tylenol, I have significant stiff and soreness.
Avatar_f_tn i had a rib removed after an accident. initially after surgery i was very sore and limited in my movement. after 6 weeks i was driving again and back at work.
Avatar_f_tn For the past 6 months or so I have a recurring lump on my face which presents itself exactly like a mosquito bite about 3 cm below my eye. It is in exactly the same place everytime, red, raised and very itchy. The surrounidnng area is quite pink as well. It sometimes happens on a weekly basis, other times with several weeks in between. In the beginning it would come and go very quickly, within the day but lately it is taking 2-3 days to go although the itching subsides quicker.
Avatar_n_tn I recently was in the hospital and had an IV and while they had to try a few times, one of these time it hit a nerve. The IV ended up in the other arm but a day or so after I got out of the hospital I started to have somwhat sharp pain in my wrist and down into the meaty part of my thumb. I'm wondering if this will go away eventually or should I see someone about it?
Avatar_n_tn About six months ago my left neck began to hurt and I noticed what I thought was a lump there. I went to a head and neck specialist and he said that I had inflammtion of my Carotid artery(Carotidynia). The lump, I guess, was just the bifurcation of my artery that was swollen. The doctor told me to take an anti-inflammatory(ibuprophen) for 2 weeks. The pain finally diminished, but about a month later it started in my right neck.
Avatar_f_tn In particular, post inflammatory pigmentation usually emerge after recovery from an inflammation of the skin. The skin will exhibit patches or dots of darkened areas that may also be due to episodic traumas which include burns or puncture wounds. Most persons who suffer from post-inflammatory pigmentation will heal with time. Normally, their pigmentation will return to normal as the skin sheds the the outermost skin layer or the epidermis.
Avatar_n_tn Sometimes this kind of thing will go away on its own, but can require hospitalization and IV antibiotics in extreme situations. Bottom line - see your primary physician for any non-healing lesion, wound, or persistent hot/swollen/red area.
339491_tn?1201708187 bat i guess...not as big of a puncture wound! lol Would you rather find a snake in your bed or a tarantula?! (both with equal toxic venom!
Avatar_n_tn The seditive they give you will not put you out because they have to get you to turn sometimes to avoid puncture of the colon; however, I rememember nothing after the proceedure. The doctor even told my wife that she would have to repeat his findings since I would not remember anything about it and for about 1/2 hour after. You must have some one to drive you home or they will not perform the proceedure. Good Luck and follow-up on the advice on checking your meds...
798555_tn?1292791151 And I also had a bicycle accident due to a road hazard that resulted in a puncture wound and a head injury with 20 stitches....and ALL those things had imaging done without protecting the thyroid and stressful lawsuits attached. Complicated. After a gap of 10 years, I just went back and had some more weekly treatment for a problem with my knee that may be coming from the bad disc at L-5 as well as me falling on it at a full run playing badminton.
Avatar_n_tn I can't tell you the complete results of surgery now till i comlpletely heal. Inspite of all the pain i've gone throt=gh after surgery and going through now, i have to say that i'm glad I went through the surgery and didn't wait anylonger. hope this helps.
Avatar_n_tn Hello All, This is my first time being on this site and it has been truly insightful so far. I am a 33 year old female that found a lump in my breast. After the mammogram (VERY painful) and ultrasound, a 1 cm lump was indicated. The ultrasound findings indicate "an area of palpable abnormality 4 cm from the nipple. This is a suggestion there is some enhancement posteriorly suggesting this may represent a complex cyst.
299940_tn?1192322967 4 years. I have been going through test after test, CT scan, MRI's (of my head and spine) and many and i mean MANY blood tests. I have seen A Neurologist, Nerve Specialist, Lyme Literate MD and in two weeks a ENT (this will be my 2nd ENT that i will be seeing). Through my MRI they found both of my maxillary sinus' have cycts. My Lyme doctor believes alot of my head symptoms including, ear pain, head aches, jaw pain, red eyes, vision problems are due to these sinus cysts.
