Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is likely a hematoma or collection of blood under the skin from the blood vessel injury.

Over time there is organization of the blood forming scar tissue resulting in a lump.

This is a harmless condition.

This is not likely a blood clot.

The lump will gradually resolve over time.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
