I tripped and fell...

I tripped and fell on my chin 3 weeks ago. It bruised and after about 4-5 days later two hard lumps formed on my chin next to each other. The lumps are still there and have not gone down at all. Should I be worried?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?

The lumps have been there for about 2 1/2 weeks and are hard.

50 years old, no other symptoms or pain. they don't seem to be attached to my chin bone. didn't consult doctor or have any test. no medicine. From what I have read, it is probably a hematoba...is that what you think it is, and when should they go away?

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The hard lumps are likely to be hematoma.
Those are organized collection of blood.
Those would get absorbed gradually.
You can apply warm, moist compress.
If those get bigger or become painful, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
