I got a big dark bruise on leg with lighter colored lump in the middle. Hasn't improved in 4 days. No pain except when touching the lump. What to do?
"Normal bruising": It's likely that you bumped into something but didn't pay it any mind. The lump is probably a small area of bleeding (hematoma). This area will slowly resolve with the bluish color turning yellowish and then disappearing. No specific treatment is needed. This type of bruising is common in the lower extremities. If you have frequent development of bruises you should see your physician. ...Read more
I got into a car accident. I have a large bruise on my leg that keeps getting bigger and had a hard lump under skin. Its been growing every day?

I had fallen and gotten a large bruise on my leg a week ago. Now there is a lump that is red, sore & feels hot.?
Posible Infection: A bruise is a hematoma resulting from bleeding into the soft tissues. It is a good medium in which bacteria can live and grow. It is possible, even without a break in your skin, that the hematoma has become infected. The redness and heat are sign of a localized infection. You should have it checked by your primary care physician. ...Read more

About a week ago, I got a large bruise on my upper inner thigh. I noticed yesterday there is a large lump (a little bigger than golf ball) underneath?
Hematoma: You probably broke a blood vessel with the injury and there is a collection of blood that is slowly being broken down which is the "golf ball". You should apply heat and take a nonsteroidal such as ibuprofen or naproxen for a few days to help kick start the process. If the bruising goes away but the golf ball remains for more than a week or two, you should be seen and possibly x-rayed. ...Read more

You will need further work up to make diagnosis. The lump under is still coagulated blood or hematoma which will reabsorb also. ...Read more

Hit my shin bone 4 weeks ago, it's still swollen and bruised. There's a large lump. Tender to touch. Only gets sore if use it to much?
Bump is hematoma: The large lump is a common normal response to an injury over the tibia from blunt trauma. The bony lining or periosteum is very vascular and thus can bleed significantly leading to a local hematoma. The swelling should start to subside with rest, ice, decreased use and an ace wrap to provide compression and protection. ...Read more

Hematoma?: This could be a hematoma, which is essentially a black-and-blue mark that's a bit deeper under the skin. Whereas black-and-blue marks spread in two dimensions, a hematoma grows in three dimensions so can feel like a lump under the skin. If your leg is not diffusely swollen then a DVT is probably not a concern. Warm soaks to this area may help. ...Read more
