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

Sounds like you have: A hematoma with fatty tissue mixture, from severed skin/fat from the deeper tissues, (with collection of blood + fat), which will probably require surgical decompression and drainage. See an orthopod for proper diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

Yes: Often when you have an injury that causes bruising, you can injure the underlying fatty tissue causing lumps to form that often take weeks to resolve. If there is any increase in size or if they are not resolving, have them examined. All the best. ...Read more

I have a lump on my thigh, it's sore but no bruising, it appeared out of no where?

I have a lump on my thigh, it's sore but no bruising, it appeared out of no where?

Hard to say.: Quite difficult to say without more details and a better idea of where this is located how big and how deep. Sometimes bruising can be present but not visible deep in the tissue. Could be a fatty tumor, a small amount of blood leaked out of a vessel after trauma, a lymph node, or something else.... In any case this should be resolving over time, otherwise see someone. ...Read more

Bruising residuals..: The lump you feel is more than likely the end results of your bruise. Likely a muscle contusion still on the mend or some yet to be dissolved hematoma remnants. Apply some moist heat to the area until it fades into obscurity. ...Read more
