Possibly 2 reasons--:
1): bleeding and swelling from the ribs gravitating towards the scrotum over a period of 5-7 days, which is probably the main reason;
2): or you might have hurt your groin/scrotum and because of ribs being more painful and
had your attention, the groin problem is showing itself now.
I believe the (1) is more likely the rause.
See you pcp, or maybe get a u/s for it to confirm no local problem. ...Read more
Fell on stairs 2 weeks ago. Bruised tailbone and hurt my ribs. Sometimes it's hard to breath because my ribs ache. Should I go to doc or is it okay?
Ok: This sounds ok. A fall such as yours could cause irritation and bruising to the areas you mention. IF you have a small fracture of the ribcage, this is not something that can be casted or treated otherwise medically, so I recommend you just relax and not overexert yourself within the next four weeks. You should notice slow improvement of symptoms over the next few weeks. ...Read more
Sharp pain and bruising on 1 side of my ribs after a hard fall on concrete stairs. Should I get checked out? I can breathe even though it hurts badly.
Good morning, I had a fall less than 48 hrs ago down my stairs and hurt my leg and ribs and since numbness under my ribs towards back and low belly??
Medical check up: A medical examination by your physician would be a good idea as the numbness implies possible injury to one of the intercostal nerves. You may also have broken a rib in that area. Usually rib fracturte causes pain which will be worse on taking a deep breath. I would suggest a medical exam and possibly X-rays on your Rib/s where you are hurting or have a bruised area/numbness areas. ...Read more

Could I have a blood clot if I fell down stairs, have a bump on my butt, feel faint, big bruise covering my whole cheel chest pain, difficult to walk?
Probably not: Typically, blood clots in the veins are associated with inactivity, not trauma. A DVT usually gives you leg swelling and a "charley horse" feeling deep in the muscle of the calf. The bump on your butt could be a blood clot in the soft tissues (hematoma). The chest pain could be a chest wall contusion (bruise) or even a rib fracture. I suggest you get checked out by your doctor. ...Read more

Resident at RCFE falls down the stairs, looks traumatized, left shoulder, chest painful, has difficulty walking. But no one looked at him. Why?
No one knew?: Perhaps incident in Residential Care Facility for Elderly was not witnessed, and resident didn't report trauma/fall/injury to caregivers? Painful chest & traumatized left shoulder might not be as easy to observe in passing. One would hope that someone would have observed difficulty walking & inquired. It also depends upon frequency of interactions w/staff. And of course, staff experience & trainin ...Read more

I fell down the stairs and now my left shin really hurts. Its elevated with ice and a large bruise is forming. I can walk/limp. What did I do to it?
Bad bone bruise: The shin normally has a thick layer of skin, then periosteum (thick bone cover), then bone. You gave it a hard knock, bled under the skin and got inflamed and lots pain. If u can walk, it is very unlikely u broke anything. So continue ice, elevate, switch to heat after 48 hours, mild analgesic as neede for pain. Oh, and why did u fall? Poor lighting? Don't let it happen again, you hear! ...Read more

I fell down the stairs real hard in November last year. It hurt my left bum. Now the bruises have gone but it left big hard oval lump around 10 cm long on my bum, it doesn't hurt, but how to get rid of it? And how long will it take?
Lump on buttocks: May be a hematoma and that is still resorbing, or may have become cystic or fibrosed or bony- myositis ossificans or rarely may be a mass (fibroma, hemangioma, neurofibroma that came to light after trauma. Would consider sonogram/ xray to identify the nature of the bump. Consider massage and warm soaks and time, sometimes excision is needed f/u/ w/ doc ...Read more
