How long does it take for a moderately lg pelvic hematoma to go away by itself. Result of pelvic fractures.

Weeks: Hematomas can take weeks and even months to completely resolve, especially if they are sizable. I suspect the pain that you have (from the fractures and the hematoma) will likely resolve within about 6 - 8 weeks, probably long before the hematoma actually resolves. ...Read more

I have an itchy welt like rash on neck, eyes, elbows, pelvis and legs. Now developing bruise like soreness at the base of both palms.?

This is unusual: Leah, you really need to see a clinician both to get relief from the symptoms and find the cause. You can take over the counter antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the itching, but the soreness is strange and could mean it is something more than just an allergy. Good luck! ...Read more

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?

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.

Gave myself what I think was a hematoma this morning. Hard lump and swollen. Area became red though and very warm to touch. Could this be infected?

Possibly: What did you do to give yourself a hematoma? Did you break the skin? Hematomas can be hard, swollen, warm and red. However, heat, redness and swelling are also symptoms of cellulitis. If it persists, or you have a fever, or the redness increases, you should see a doctor right away. ...Read more

My daughter's usg brain report says  "A scalp hematoma measuring 11.3 x 3.5 mms is seen over the left parietal  area."I am afraid. What should I do.

My daughter's usg brain report says  "A scalp hematoma measuring 11.3 x 3.5 mms is seen over the left parietal  area."I am afraid. What should I do.

Puzzling question: A scalp hematoma means there is a collection of blood under the skin of the scalp. This usually reflects a broken blood vessel from trauma. It usually hurts, can persist for days or weeks, but has little if any importance. It is not by itself any sort of brain injury. It is not inside the skull. ...Read more

Possible infection: While swelling and pain 7-10 days after a surgical procedure are to be expected, to be present 3 weeks later suggests an infection. While hematomas generally appear shortly after a surgical procedure, not usually much later, they can become infected as well.
See your surgeon as soon as possible for evaluation and possible treatment. Delay could compromise the success of your graft. ...Read more
