I got an injection near my anus. Its been one month. The hard site of injection is still there. Why it take so long to dissolve. No pain. Hematoma I doubt.

I got an injection near my anus. Its been one month. The hard site of injection is still there. Why it take so long to dissolve. No pain. Hematoma I doubt.

Hematoma: I would feel that this is an organized blood clot from bleeding at the injection site. Often fibrosis sets in and the firm nodule won't dissolve even after warm applications. If these clots are painful or tender, they would have to be removed by minor surgery. A general surgeon or proctologist can evaluate it and advise you. ...Read more
