Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

Small hematomas usually get absorbed on their own.

Such large hematoma will need an examination by doctor.

Till you visit doctor, you need to keep the leg elevated & at rest.

You can apply ice.

Ice should be applied after wrapping in a towel or cloth.

Tylenol can be taken if you feel any pain.

I hope this information helps.
