Hi and welcome.As you have told size of hematoma is quite large. Though it resolves over couple of weeks but it is better for you to go to ER and get it evaluated as active bleeding within tissue has to be ruled out. Clot in that area does not move into blood stream but you should get it examined to be on safe side. You can take ibuprofen for pain and it would decrease inflammation as well.Let me know if you have further questions.

How is active bleeding evaluated?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 10 months ago.
If hematoma is increasing in size and by checking your vitals like falling blood pressure shows active bleed. Usually hematoma itself compresses vessel and stops bleeding as you said it is hard most likely bleeding would have stopped but getting examination is better.
