What is the treatment for a broken blood vessel in my finger?

Ice and pressure. Symptomatic treatment would be ice to the area and compression wrapping with an ace bandage. More importantly, however, is why is this happening to you? Is this do to an injury or to taking blood thinners or do to an underlying blood clotting problem? If symptomatic treatment doesn't help then you should see a hematologist for a clotting evaluation.

I've been born with a broken blood vessel in my tongue (it looks like a black ball in it.) Could you please tell me what it exactly is?

Doubt your label. A broken blood vessel would scar and heal over time. An enlarged venous malformation might be possible.What would be more likely would be a collection of jumbled blood vessels called a hemangioma. All of these possibilities are evident to a trained observer on physical exam. Whether or not some procedure might be possible to remove it could be determined at that time. Read more...

Will a broken blood vessel in the neck heal on its own?

Usually 7 to 10 days. If a vein is bruised this usually results in bleeding either under the skin to form a hematoma (trapped clotted blood) or from the skin directly. Veins injured below the skin with a hematoma will take about 7 to 10 days to heal while a vein bleeding from the skin will usually stop with direct pressure and heal within 5 to 7 days. Read more...
