White Center Circle With Black Circle Bruise
I'vehad this bruise on my knee for about three weeks. I have a ping pong sized hard bump on it. It is black and blue with a light center? What is it?
Hematoma: This is a benign blood clot due to some type of trauma. It will not be any danger to you. As it resolves the center can be lighter. You can hasten its resolution with application of external heat and hot packs. This will help the body remove the clotted blood. Your physician can confirm the diagnoses and see if other issues should be considered. Sometimes it can be aspirated. ...Read more

Localized bleeding: Bruises or hematomas are actually localized areas of bleeding from direct trauma to the involved area. The coloration is initially very dark (black and blue) but quickly fades to lighter shades as the body and local tissues metabolize and breakdown the millions of red cells that make up the bruise. Darker coloration correlates with a denser volume of bleeding. ...Read more

If its a melanin response, then one of the products discussed on the internet might help (http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/Skin_whitening). If its deeper than the skin, you might consult a plastic surgeon, ...Read more

Correct in drawing that line...It may very well be infected! (The red line may represent lymphatic spread of infection) Suggest you get "hands on" consultation (An ER or Urgent Care center if your Primary Care physician cannot see you within next 24 hours!!) In the meantime HOT WET SOAKS. ......

Any concerns and to the doctor you go. ...Read more
