The doctor examined me yesterday
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

It doesn't seem to be infection so far. It could be just inflammation. You should take over-the-counter pain medication. If it becomes red and warm, you should see the doctor.

Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

It is difficult to say what it is. It could be hematoma under the skin. You should have ultrasound.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What is hematoma?
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

blood clot with bleeding after removing the cyst

Is it dangerous? I just looked up and it says it's bruising. Why wouldn't my doctor tell me this yesterday !
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

It is not dangerous. It will be absorbed if it is not getting bigger. You should take over-the-counter pain medication such as Naproxen.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is that why its sore?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Why wouldn't dermatologist tell me this yesterday?
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

I guess she thought it will be absorbed.

Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

That's why it is sore. It should be all right. Take pain medication.
