Possibly: Blood vessels are damaged due to increased fragility or due to trauma or both. You don't mention where this blood vessel is? For instance, a blood vessel may hemorrhage in the white of eye (sclera) when you cough hard or sneeze hard. Blood vessels in the rectum (hemorrhoids) rupture and bleed with straining and hard stools. See the pattern? ...Read more

How do doctors treat a broken blood vessel?

How do doctors treat a broken blood vessel?

Usually nothing: This depends on the cause of the "broken blood vessel". Loss of supporting tissue associated with "maturity", medications like Aspirin or non-steroidals, varicosities or local trauma are common causes.

I've been born with a broken blood vessel  in my tongue(it looks like a black ball in it.) Could you please tell me what it exactly is?

Doubt your label: A broken blood vessel would scar and heal over time. An enlarged venous malformation might be possible.What would be more likely would be a collection of jumbled blood vessels called a hemangioma. All of these possibilities are evident to a trained observer on physical exam. Whether or not some procedure might be possible to remove it could be determined at that time. ...Read more

However if the rupture was mild,spontaneous and not caused by injury,you should be able to perform your gymnastics providing there is no associated swelling. Of course if you're experiencing multiple spontaneous capillary or vein ruptures over your body,you will need evaluation by an MD. ...Read more
