A hematoma is a collection of blood in tissue, usually related to trauma, though spontaneous hematomas do occur. It will usually reabsorb on it's own, over time, but sometimes it will consolidate and become firm and constant, occassionally requiring removal. Just be patient, it should be fine and self limited. Good luck.
