Varies: The term chronic when used with subdural hematoma just refers to the time period it has been present. Subdural hematoma formation usually occurs following an injury, although they can occur with other causes such as the use of blood thinners for example. A neurologist or neurosurgeon are the specialists that typically treat them. Don't hesitate to be seen and thoroughly evaluated.
