How do you decide between a bruise and a deep tissue injury?

Medical jargon: Very little difference. In assessing a patient, I'd ask about pain severity, location, and quality. History would supply facts about how the injury was sustained. I'd visualize and palpate the area. If there was trauma and now there is pain to touch, one can assume deep tissue injury. If there is also visual color change, there is bruising. There is rarely one without some degree of the other. ...Read more

Muscle problem: Chronic, unprovoked muscle pain associated with unexplained bruising could be a serious problem. There are certain medical conditions that can cause this and would need to be investigated by your physician. There are blood tests that can narrow down the likely causes.

Biopsy results: The best person to answer this question for you is the dentist who took the biopsy. He\she knows your complete medical and dental history and has personally examined you as well. We can only give you a list of possibilities while your own dentist can either determine the exact cause or give you a pretty good educated guess. Discuss this issue with your dentist. ...Read more
