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?

Avoid Massage: 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.

I have some hematomas in my groin from an injury where I was thrown from a horse and then stepped on. Will these ever go away? Are they dangerous?

Takes months: Deep hematoma like this can take months to go away. Sometimes they never completely disappear. Even if they do not disappear they are not dangerous. The only thing to know is that some types of cancer can look like bruises; but cancer generally grows over time. If the "bruises" are stable for many months and get bigger, see your md. ...Read more

The symptoms are concerning for a vascular problem or hernia and I would urge you to seek immediate medical attention. If you had leg swelling or pain, fever, vomiting, or shortness of breath then you would have to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Large mass (hematoma) 2 months after inguinal hernia repair. What can I do?

It will be important to rule out (physical examination) recurrence of the hernia. Best wishes. ...Read more
