Hematoma In The Groin
After my angiogram I developed a hematoma in my groin. Should I massage the hard area or use a warm compress? Can I do damage if I massage it?
Hematoma's are common and are best left alone as the blood will liquify and will be absorbed in 1-2 weeks time. You do not seed to do anything unless there is infection which will cause further swelling and pain. If it does not hurt, it is healing by itself.
