Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having a couple big lumps at site of bruise is most likely due to a condition called hematoma.

A hematoma is a localized collection of blood outside the blood vessels usually in liquid form within the tissue.

A hematoma usually is not a cause for concern.Apply gentle heat with warm towels, a hot water bottle, or a heating pad. The heat is applied for 20 minutes at a time to promote absorption and repair.Hematoma will resolve by itself within few days.

There is nothing serious or dangerous about this.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

well that part of my breast usually has bigger lumps anyway probably because I am breast feeding. But these lumps are hard and move. Could it be anything else? It isn’t on the whole bruise just part of it

Dear customer

Thank you for replying back.

When the bleeding causes a raised area, the area is called a "hematoma.” A bruise may have a bump or knot in the middle.

This is most likely due to hematoma.

Nothing of concern here.Please do not worry.

It is not due to cancer or anything serious.

If the injury happened within last 48 hours then apply ice . If it is more then 48 hours,then you need to apply ice.

Within few hours,this hematoma will subside.

Thank you.

I have had the bruise for a couple days so I am not sure how long the lumps have been there. How long do they last if you do apply ice?

Dear customer

Thank you for replying back.

If you apply ice in first 48 hours,these lumps subside in next 24 hours.

But do not worry. As you have the bruise for a couple days, I advise you to apply the heat as described above, This helps in quick healing & the lump -hematoma & the bruise will subside very soon.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Dr. Josh
