Lump after a bruise

Common Questions and Answers about Lump after a bruise


Avatar f tn A couple of days ago, one of my sisters found out she had small cancerous cells in her breast. She doesn't know everything yet, whether it's genetic or not, how developed it is. She had a mammogram back in November and everything was fine. FYI, she's 40 years old and has 3 kids. Perfectly healthy otherwise. This comes as a huge shock as no member of our family ever had cancer. So my first question is: How bad is it? It's obviously an early stage, but it can't spread quite rapidly no?
Avatar m tn I had a large bruise with a lump the size of a golf ball. After the bruise disappeared the lump was still there but went down to the size of a pea. I just went for a mammo the month before the fall and everything was negative. Should I wait a while before going to check it out or wait a little longer to see if it goes away.

Avatar f tn Hi, Usually a bruise and a lump is caused by injury to the breast tissue,even a minor bump that you may not even remember how it happened could cause fragile blood vessels to bleed and thus forming a hematoma/lump (blood filled pocket) The fact that the bruise has disappeared is a very good sign,but the lump could still persists for a while longer .
Avatar f tn When a blood vessel is damaged blood leaks into the surrounding tissue, coagulates and forms a lump.(Hematoma) Usually small hematomas go away on their own after a while.You could gently massage the breast and apply warm compresses to help dissolve it. It is common for a bruise to change colors and fade during the healing process.The lump can take a while to disappear ...
Avatar f tn The other night my breast was itching, I felt a skin tag, and under it a small lump. When I looked in daylight the lump area was red and there was a bruise above that. I went to doctors today, he wouldn't say anything, but he referred me to breast clinic and on the form put suspected cancer. I am not sure if this is because there is some family history - three of my aunts have had breast cancer. From what I have researched I can't see it being inflammatory b c but it seems to fit it with.
Avatar f tn A few days later a large lump appeared with a faint yellow sheen on it. Within days a massive bruise covered 2/3rd's of my breast..I take warfarin so am used to this occurring. The bruise has all but gone now, but the lump is still there, still the same size and very prominent. I went to the urgent care centre today, hoping they might be able to treat the lump immediately if it was found to be a Hematoma which needed draining or anything.
Avatar m tn the next day I noticed i had a lump that was hurting me and then two days later it turned into a huge bruise about half of my palm. The bump is still there and i dont know if its just a bruise or its something i should go check out. I would like to know what it could possibly be.
Avatar m tn Hello, This lump on head can be due to a small hematoma. A hematoma is formed because of blood trapped in tissues. Apply warm compresses and take some anti inflammatory drug after consulting your doctor. If the symptoms persist or worsen then it may need drainage. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Avatar f tn The orthopedist suspects that the meniscus tear is old and asymptomatic and that my current problems are related to pes tendinitis and related tightness in the gracilis because there was never a twisting injury or a popping sound prior to the pain starting. I ran a marathon last week with compression tights and kinesio tape around the hamstring and along the gracilis and felt fine throughout the race.
Avatar n tn Four weeks ago I was hit in the shin playing softball. and I got a nice bruise in that area. I went to the Doctor after about 3weeks. First off I thought it was improving she said it was just a hemotoma and there wasen't much she could do. The exray's showed no bone break. So right now the area is red with a small lump there, I have been icing it as much as possible.
Avatar f tn The pain was horrible but i figured it was just a bruise and it should be gone in a week. After about a week, my shin was still slightly discolored and i had started to loose feeling in the top layer of skin in that area. About a week after that, a huge lump had formed and it became extremely sensitive. About two weeks ago, i got hit there again, although not as hard, and the pain was unbearable. It felt like my leg cracked open and was bleeding inside.
Avatar f tn Back in Nov 2008, my son fell and hit his cheek. It formed a bruise, then a lump. He's had the lump now for 8 months and the bruise is gone, but I can see little red capillaries. Back in December, my doc said it was a calcified bruise and that it may take a year or more to go away. I have seen him a few times about it, but he still says it will go away after a year or so. It's still there (about 2 cm) and I'm worried about it. Does this sound normal and should I worry about it?
Avatar f tn purple bruise encompassing the bottom of my breast. I am concerned because with the bruise I also have a lump the size of a small plum . Should I call my doctor & should I be applying hot or cold compresses on the lump? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/530532'>Suspected Fibroadenoma</a>.
Avatar m tn Hello, Such bump with a bruise can be due to boil, erythema nodosum or if the redness has appeared after some trauma, then it can be due to cellulitis. Erythema nodosum is an important possibility.It results in reddish, painful, tender lumps most commonly located in the front of the legs below the knees. Diagnosis is by physical examination and biopsy of the lesion.
Avatar n tn I recently injured my breast carrying a heavy box that was hit by my screen door as I entered my home- the corner of the box dug into my right breast and I now have a nasty bruise with a small lump underneath. I do regular BSE's and the lump only appeared after I noticed the bruise. I am scheduled for my annual mammogram in two weeks - will this affect the reading or quality of the mammogram? Thank you.
1562436 tn?1294979860 I recently had a similar thing on my right breast. You'd think I'd remember getting bashed in the chest but it was quite a large bruise with a lump. I called my doctor, she said I should wait a couple weeks. If it resolves on its own, then it was just a standard soft tissue injury. If the lump remained after a couple of months, then I was to go in for a mammogram. Mine gradually went away. Perhaps your Mom leaned against something and burst a small blood vessel that caused the bruising.
Avatar n tn Eleven days ago I had an EMG done on my upper extremeties, testing for signs of carpal tunnel. When the exam was done, I noticed a large lump on the inside of my right forearm where one of the needles was inserted. It remained swollen for a few hours and was sore to the touch. It also ached whenever I flexed my hand at the wrist, feeling like a bruised muscle.

691614 tn?1227468251 I'm sorry about your bruise, but everything should turn out hunky-dory in a short time. If there are problems after six weeks, see a physician.
Avatar f tn The pain made me sick and few days later there was dark red lump in the middle of the bruise which didnt go away for two months. The lump had gone but bruise remains and it seem to be covering wider area. About three months ago it started to hurt again ( after a brief painless period) and sometimes it feels like there is a sort of cramp inside the area.
Avatar m tn you were never at risk ) Continuing on (next par happened at home) I had bruised blood on my bottom lip gum so i used a solid sewing pin from the drawer to burst it , i didnt clean the pin but it looked clean and new Im 60% sure i cant get hiv this way (nobody in my family has hiv) can someone confirm The blood then came out and went away then over the next few days it keeps filling up with what appears to be saliva , So i got another pin and burst it and it was like water liquid that c
903138 tn?1266770641 the trainer used a golfball to make a hard pad and i used that for the remainder of the game and for about 2 weeks after that. the bruise was then back to a normalish size and purple color. after that i occasionally fell on that part of my arm, but didnt think much of it. about 3 weeks ago i noticed that there is a pea sized lump/bump where the bruise was. i can move the lump around by pressing on it, but that brings sharp pain.
Avatar f tn I thought it was a coincidence until about a week after the first rash, a 2nd one appeared just after a really deep bruise on my buttocks (ran into a cabinet door corner) healed. The buttocks rash didn't last nearly as long as the leg one. (which I'm wondering if it could be because the one on my hip sits directly under the seam for the pants I wear and is therefore under more pressure/aggrevated more regularly.) I'm glad I found this site...
173119 tn?1297003336 This does sound like a bruise and the lump you feel as a result is likely to be a hematoma (pooled blood within the tissue beneath the skin) but if it doesn't go away in a week or so then you might feel better if you have your Dr. ck. it out by examination and/or Ultrasound. Hematomas can take a considerable length of time to resolve themselves and I would suggest that you NOT keep palpating (feeling or poking) the area as this could delay the healing process. Take care ....
530185 tn?1212872868 The lump could very well be a hematoma. Often a lump is accociated with a bruise. It might take some time to absorb (go away) but if it remains for over a week or so I would certainly have it checked out.
Avatar f tn I have a lump in my breast at first it is a little bit painful after 2 months the pain dis appear and the lump inside my breast occur. I took antibiotics after 7 days the bruise occur and after 1 month the bruise turn to wound. a round hole looks like and i little bit painful. After 3 weeks the wound still there just healing very slowly and sometimes there's an itchiness and little bit sting pain. Is this a sign of breast cancer?? Please advise.
Avatar n tn When a few months go by, the bump on my face starts looking like a bruise, and does swallow up time to time. When it does break out after a few months, alot of dark, thick blood comes out. I'm just wondering what this might be as it seems very unusual to me that i have such bad acne at the age of 16. Please reply, your thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Avatar n tn Hi, Most likely the injury to your breast has caused the bruising and the lump and this could very well be a Hematoma. A bruise caused by injury is often associated with a lump and it can take some time to disappear. However,if you are concerned and this lump persist, more than a week or two,I would advise you to have it checked out by your Doctor. Best wishes...
