Hi I was choked and punched on the face now I have a small moveable lump on my cheek. And a knot on my neck. What is it will it go away?

After effects.: I'm very sorry to hear that you have gone through this. The knot in your neck could be a muscle spasm, and the movable lump on your cheek would either be a lymph node or a small hematoma. These things should take two weeks or so to clear, and if they don't in that timeframe you should have a doctor take a look at you. ...Read more

I got punched in the face around six days ago resulting in a black eye. There is a lump very close to the bruise site. Is this a cause for concern?

Hematoma: You had bleeding around the eye caused by the assault. The blood underneath the skin as it gets absorbed may be forming to a scar, probably that is what you feel. As long as it is getting better every day no need to worry about it. ...Read more

My dad punched the right side of my head really hard, a bump there now, I don’t think I have concussion, should I be worried for other problems?

Head injury: Ice is helpful right after the injury. Tylenol 650 mg po q 4 hrs for pain/HA. Observe for prolonged HA, visual/balance problems, emesis, and continued pain.
If there is a bump, it might calcify and resolve over time
(i.e. months).If changes in mentation, behavior over the next month, see neurologist, but unlikely if you did not lose consciousness. ...Read more

Dad punched me really hard on upper part of side of my head, there’s a bump but doesn’t feel like concussion, should I be concerned for hematoma, etc?

Dad punched me really hard on upper part of side of my head, there’s a bump but doesn’t feel like concussion, should I be concerned for hematoma, etc?

Yes: You may have a scalp blood hematoma ; feel for an expanding lump at the site of the bruise. More of concern is an injury powerful enough to fracture the skull and cause bleeding beneath the skull putting pressure on the brain, subdural hematoma.
see a physician if you have any doubts. ...Read more

Jaw lump: The most common error in jaw trauma is to fail to follow it to resolution. When an initial xray is "negative" for fracture, it doesn't necessarily mean there isn't one! There may be a "nondisplaced" fracture which does not show up. The xray must be repeated in 10 to 14 days, when the decalcification of the fracture will then sometimes show up. With a persistent lump, you should see an oral surgeon. ...Read more

Punched a person & car window about two weeks ago. X-rays show no fracture. There's a lump on the backside of my hand. Painful to move hand& swollen.

Punched a person & car window about two weeks ago. X-rays show no fracture. There's a lump on the backside of my hand. Painful to move hand& swollen.

Pretty Handy.: More than likely, your hand has suffered some soft tissue damage. If the x-rays were taken immediately after the altercation, a stress fracture may has been unable to detect at that time. This could contribute to the swelling you are having now. It may be to late for the therapeutic effects of RICE now. (Rest, ice, elevation and compression.) You can try moist heat. See a doctor if no improvement. ...Read more
