What can be the reason of long lasting hematomas (more than 9 months) from intramuscular injections (B12)?
Location, location..: A hematoma is simply blood which has collected outside of a blood vessel, no different than a "black-and-blue" mark. The critical issue is where this collection is. If it's sitting under the skin, it is of no concern. If it's between the skull and the brain, it can create pressure on the brain and be life-threatening. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes.: I give blood 3-4 times a year and will get a quarter to half dollar sized bruise once a year. Why? Shifting in the needle or a tricky stick can do it. Post procedure elevation and pressure will decrease the possibility. If you are easily bruised on your body, bleeding gums or blood in your urine or stool ... See your doctor. The fact that you can give blood is a good indicator that all is well. ...Read more
?Where: Most hematomas spontaneously resolve in time (gone within 3-5 weeks). On a rare occasion some hematomas are walled off and may need surgical removal. (hematomas in different areas, for example a more serious sdh (sub dural hematoma) needs to be cared for emergently as it can cause pressure on the brain, etc.) hope that helps answer your question. ...Read more
What's the question?: Yes it's possible to get a hematoma in a hysterectomy incision. If it's not enlarging, we usually leave it alone.

The relief is instant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If injured, yes: Subungual hematoma is a blood clot under a nail, usually from a direct blow (hitting your fingertip with a hammer, stubbing your toe). If you seek medical attention within the first 24 hours, they can be drained with a hot probe thru the nail - generally almost painlessly, and by relieving the pressure it really helps the pain! very small hematomas or older ones are not worth draining. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes: In most cases people will have these develop when they sustained minor trauma to the nail & may not feel it at all.However, moderate trauma like catching a finger in a door jam or other direct trauma can give rise to a pressurized/painful hematoma. I routinely open these in the office with a the heated pointed end of a paper clip.The hole releases the pressure & the pain leaves. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
