Hard Lump After Injection
Got gardisol shot 2weeks ago. There's a hard lump (like a flat blueberry) under injection area. Been there right after shot. Still sore. Should I get checked?
Yes and no: I would need more details to say don't worry, but it is common to develop a small blood collection at the site of injections, called a hematoma. If there is no redness or fever, you should feel pretty relaxed, but it can take some time for these to resolve! Anyway, if I had done this I would hope you would call me and come back in so I could take a look and so we would BOTH feel sure you are OK. ...Read more
Got gardisol shot a week ago. There 's hard lump (size of blueberry) under injection area. Been there right after shot. Still sore. Should I get check?
Hematoma: This sounds like a small blood clot under the skin from slight bleeding at the injection site. Applying warm compresses intermittently helps break down the clot which is not the dangerous type. If a tender lump persists, it may require a small incision to remove it in which case you will have to consult a surgeon although this is usually not necessary. ...Read more
Local irritation: I'm assuming it was a vaccine. There is usually a little inflammation that occurs with a vaccine, and afterwards a small "granuloma" can develop. It can take a few weeks for that to go away, but it doesn't mean anything. Bruising is because local capillaries are ruptured by either the injection of fluid into a closed space, the puncture of the needle itself, or the inflammation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I got my first gardasil shot 2 weeks ago. I still have a very hard lump at the injection site, and hurts to touch. Is this normal?
See your doctor: It is normal to feel a hardening of the skin (lump) for up to several weeks after an injection; however, any tenderness associated with the shot should have already resolved. We need to be concerned about infection at the site or other possible complications. Recommend seeing your doctor to have the area examined. ...Read more

I recently had a flu injection. There is now a large hard very painful lump under the skin. Why is that happening?
Common side effect: Hello, You are experiencing a common reaction to the flu shot. Your immune system is mounting a local reaction which causes swelling to the area where you received the flu shot. This is normal and means that your body is responding to the shot the way it has to.Warm compresses or moving the arm helps. Try acetaminophen or ibuprofen for severe pain. The swelling should subside in 7- 10 days. ...Read more
My daughter had her 18th month old needle 3 days ago now i notice a red circle and a hard lump where she had the injection should i be concerned?
Not uncommon: That local reaction is quite common and is actually the most common side effect after immunization. In a way, it's good as it shows the body recognizes the vaccine as something it needs to build an immune response to, and that is the idea of vaccines . Put a cool wash cloth on the area 10 minutes each hour while awake to help decrease swelling. If area gets lots bigger in next days, then see doc. ...Read more

Hello, I had a volteral injection about 3 weeks ago now, I have a hard lump under my skin and the area about 5 inches in my upper arm that is numb?
It could be the volt: I would have expected the voltarel to have been absorbed but it is possible it is still there in one form or another. It may have caused a hematoma which was there initially and now has fibrosis in it. You can see your physician to evaluate this.You may need a biopsy. The numbness may be related to nerve injury. ...Read more
