How long will it take for a lg thigh hematoma (~ 3"x5") to start getting smaller? I injured my leg almost 2 weeks ago. It's quite large,hard&painful.

In brief: Hematoma

Sometimes a hematoma will harden under the skin as a painful,tender lump and will need to be removed with a small incision if warm soaks Don't cause it to recede.
A general surgeon performs the procedure.
