What is left parietal hematoma? Is parietal hematoma and subdural hematoma same?

Different: A hematoma is like a bruise or collection of blood from a trauma. In parietal hematoma this is in the parietal lobe of the brain, so it is in the brain tissue itself. A subdural hematoma is just under the dura mater one of the coverings of the brain so it is up close to the skull.

Hematoma- blood coll: Hematoma is collection of blood somewhere in the body...anywhere in the body....it's called a hematoma. Parietal tells us the location (Parietal lobe of the brain) usually due to high blood pressure while Subdural hematoma means collection of blood below the level of the DURAL cover of the covering of the brain called the meninges...often times traumatic cause but also often can be spontaneous.

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.

Can a bruise on the back of the parietal bone cause a haemangioma?

Can a bruise on the back of the parietal bone cause a haemangioma?

Not likely.: A hemangioma is a slow-growing benign vascular (blood vessel) lesion. The blood vessels just grow that way sometimes. A bruise is caused by leakage of blood from one or more capillaries (the tiniest blood vessels), usually due to an injury.

I have an hematoma on left side and when I try to take a deep breath it hurt. Is that normal?

I have an hematoma on left side and when I try to take a deep breath it hurt. Is that normal?

Of what, where?: A hematoma is a bruise, and in muscle is like a "charley horse" or similar soreness that is worsened by moving it, so yes, this can be normal. It should improve with cold compresses for couple of days, then switch to warm. If pain not near site, if persists or worsens, or if get fever or new symptoms, see dr for evaluation.

How long left does one have to live with hematoma of the brain?

How long left does one have to live with hematoma of the brain?

Maybe indefinitely: Depending upon location, character, size, and certainly, how long ago this occurred, if a patient has had a good recovery and is being treated to prevent recurrence, may do well for years. Did you ask this question of your doctors, as they know you best?

Watch and wait: You may watch and wait. If the site becomes red, painful, develops a discharge or you get fever, see a doctor. If it has been more than 24 hours since the injury you may apply warm compress.

I had trauma to my penis 3 days ago which left a large hematoma. Now 3 days later there is a hard linear ridge on the topside of my penis??

Watch & see...: Sorry to hear such. How did this happen accidentally or during sex? At this time, i.e., 3 days after injury, it would be reasonable to watch, wait, & see how the nature may take its course to evolve and heal. To state something more accurately, one needs more info.

Trauma: If there is no sensation on the left side, and if it is paralzyzed, then it is much more likely to bump into objects and suffer injury that causes the hematoma.
