I think I got bit by a spider last night my leg was painful and there was a red hard lump. Today it's still very tender and the redness has grown?
SPIDER BITE: All spiders contain venom... it is how they kill their prey. Most venom is histo-toxic... It inflames & at times destroys tissue. The redness represents the venom 'leeching' out from bite site. Sometimes the redness will become black in the middle & 'follow' the redness. The size of spider bite wounds should be VERY CLOSELY monitored to make sure they are healing properly! ...Read more

Hit my upper leg on edge of table very hard a month ago. Had a huge bruise and pain but it's gone. Now I touch & feel a hard lump under skin. Hematoma?
WeAllTakeOurLumps: Yes, it could be what remains of a hematoma under the skin. That lump could be there for a few months but the body absorbs most or all of it. Nothing dangerous. Sometimes some scar remains forever but shouldn't be a problem unless you can see it and it bothers you. But, if it starts growing or begins to hurt or the skin discolors, get it checked out. ...Read more
