Hematoma Getting Harder
When to get a hematoma blood clot drained? I took a hard fall over 3 weeks ago. Bruise is gone, but large lump is getting painful again. Is it a clot?
Maybe,maybe not: Some of the bruises over bony prominences (shin, hip, etc) form a calcified (bony) mass that can take months to gradually resolve. Clots tend to break down and be absorbed into the vessels servicing those tissues. Your pcp can examine and see what this is doing. Most recommend avoiding clot drainage when possible as the maneuver can introduce infection into deep tissues. ...Read more

Difficult: A cavity forms when the hard outer shell of the tooth is worn off or eroded off by bacteria. Then bacteria can enter the dentum, the softer inner core of the tooth, which is a terrific culture medium. The bacteria will then invade unless stopped. Anti infectives can help limit the spread but eventually you will need a dentist to remove the infected portion and cover it up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Dvt is generally thought to be due to 3 things-venous stasis, vein wall trauma and hypercoagulable state. Stasis is due to immobility, wall trauma can be due to irritation such as from a catheter, compression or even external trauma and hyper coagulable state can be due to tumor or certain clotting disorders. A minor injury will not cause a clot but a significant injury can. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Many muscles: The symptoms may be due to sleeping position, previous arm immobilization, etc. Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) symptoms begin gradually, worsen over time, & then resolve within 1-2 yrs. Conservative measures (heating pad, stretching) might help. Seek urgent care if the symptoms worsen and you can't see your physician in time. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003171.htm ...Read more

Needs experienced MD: Laser tattoo removal in darker skin requires a lowering of the laser energy ( at times 1/2 or more) and increasing the time between treatments. I prefer a min of 12 weeks and in some cases 20. Black ink is safest but red requires a laser that will likely remove pigment leaving behind lightened skin even white skin where the red ink was. I have an article coming up in urban ink discussing this ...Read more
Possibly: If your mom got a blood clot for an identifiable reason, then you probably don't have to worry. If, on the other hand, she got a blood clot for reasons that are unclear then she should have blood tests to see if there is a genetic reason (thrombophilia) why the clot occurred. If any of the tests are abnormal, then you should probably be tested too since some thrombophilias can be hereditary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a large bruise on my lower leg that gets darker and more painful when I stand but decreases when the leg is elevated. I do have varicose vein issues. The bruise is now 2 weeks old and getting g worse not better ?
Venous return.: It would seem that your condition and symptoms are related to venous pressure. Standing slows the return, therefore the color intensifies. Elevation assists the return, therefore, the color fades. You need to see a vein specialist to see if there is an associated vessel problem or is the problem due to trauma. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have a bulging vein tender to touch @ wrist (below backside of pinky) for months. Will this get dislodged, travel to lung & kill me if keep sedentary?
No: A small clot on the wrist / hand is too small to cause any serious problems in the lungs if it dislodged & embolized. Also, since it has been there for months it is now chronic & is scarred to the vein wall where it cannot move anymore. The main issue in the pain / tenderness from the chronic phlebitis. If it continues to bother you then see a surgeon about possibly removing the vein. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
