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

Grey, dented bruise in thigh for 1 year and 7 months-result of hitting sharp edge of table-why this long is there, if it will ever go away?
Most likely U hit it: Rather hard, was sore & swollen 4 a while. If you were thin in the legs, & felt it right away, you would have felt the dent. A portion of the quads was disrupted, but it fills in rapidly with blood & clot so the dent seems 2go away. As time passes the clot & it's fibrin is reabsorbed & now there is that permanent void where the muscle was bluntly cut. ...Read more
What to to about lower arms that bruise really easily? My lower arms bruise really easily. I can just bump into something and an awlful bruise appears and takes a long time to go away. What causes this?
Typically: Typically that is caused by "actinic purpura" which occurs after age and sun damage thin the skin and cause it to bruise more easily. There is not easy fix, but I would recommend sunscreens, protective clothing, and do your best to avoid trauma to those areas. I would recommend you see a dermatologist who can further evaluate you to confirm the diagnosis and be sure that is the correct diagnosis. I hope that helps. Below is information on elta md sunscreen which I really like for my patients. ...Read more
2yr old with bruise/egg bump middle forehead from fall. No passing out, vomiting etc & seems fine. Should I worry? How long to go away? Thanks.
Likely no worries: Keep checking for new symptoms, there is likely a blood collection under the skin, the forehead is pretty strong, if your child is happy, playful, eating, sleeping well, there is nothing to worry about. This can take up to 2 weeks to go away. Applying ice within the first few minutes after the fall can lessen the size of the bump. If more than 5 minutes has passed ice will not work. ...Read more

It can take awhile: Hematomas are collections of blood underneath the skin that lie within the soft tissue. They can occur from trauma or happen spontaneously. They body will slowly reabsorb them with time in general and it can be difficult to estimate how long that can take depending on the size, extent and location of the hematoma. ...Read more
Varies: This will vary some with the location and the size of the blood vessel (s) broken that give rise to the hematoma. Multiple tiny vessels under a nail may take minutes. A big vessel under the scalp may accumulate a hematoma over several hours. ...Read more
Depends: Depends on how large and the location and amount of trauma associated with the hematoma. Also draining the hematoma helps it heal faster. A small hematoma occurring from venipuncture (blood draw) on the arm heals faster than a large hematoma on the lower extremity (slower healing location) caused by severe trauma (ie: car accident). ...Read more
Healing time varies: The size, volume, and location determine the variable time for a hematoma to resolve. Small hematomas may resolve in several days. Large hematomas may take weeks to resolve/heal. ...Read more
Not long.: A hematoma (collection of blood) that develops on the septum of the nose after trauma. If left untreated it can cause a loss of blood supply and destruction of the septum. Drainage to prevent permanent destruction of the septum is the treatment of choice. It take about 1-2 weeks to go away after the surgery. ...Read more

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.

What should I be doing after the rupture where I now have a 8by10by4cm hematoma, watching for, doing or not doing, and for how long?
What kind of rupture: What kind of rupture did you have? I don't understand where your hematoma is- on the skin or internal? This makes a big difference in what you should be doing for self-care. If it's a skin hematoma, rest, ice, elevation, compression, and acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain are mainstays. If internal, rest and avoiding situations where you could rebleed are probably the most important things. ...Read more
I got an injection near my anus. Its been one month. The hard site of injection is still there. Why it take so long to dissolve. No pain. Hematoma I doubt.
Hematoma: I would feel that this is an organized blood clot from bleeding at the injection site. Often fibrosis sets in and the firm nodule won't dissolve even after warm applications. If these clots are painful or tender, they would have to be removed by minor surgery. A general surgeon or proctologist can evaluate it and advise you. ...Read more
You wait longer: If a kid develops a scalp hematoma it represents a pocket of blood in between the skull and deep skin layers that have no blood supply. Blood will eventually break down to its basic chemical fluid and protein makeup and be passively absorbed gradually through the deep skin layers. Transient calcium deposits can form at the site but eventually resolve. ...Read more
