Get Evualuated: That is awful large and should be evaluated. It might be able to be drained or worse case removal in operating room if continues to be a problem. The burning could be due to nerve injury. Either way get it evaluated so that you can know what it is and receive proper treatment.

Reabsorbs slowly: This collection of blood will soften up and reabsorbs slowly. It may take several months, though. Heating pads will make it feel better in the meantime.
