What are brain contusions? How severe are they? What effects can they have on a person? I had bleeding on the brain and two contusions from an mva.

In brief: Traumatic injury

A contusion is a bruise so these can range from mild to very severe, depending on the type of injury and the location.
They can lead to long-term brain damage if they are not treated appropriately, specifically reducing any pressure inside the head and locating and stopping any associated bleeds.
