1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Trauma to soft tissue of the body can result in bleeding into the tissue forming a hematoma(clotted blood) and over time this is broken down by the body, and aspiration (using needle to drain) will often resolve the swelling, at times requiring several attempts.

In brief: Fix available

If the lump is persisting despite needle drainage, an ulrasound of the lump and the veins looking for veinous insufficiency may reveal a more treatable diagnosis.
