In brief: Usually nothing

A hematoma is a collection of blood that collects in a space where a procedure was performed.
It is common for a hematoma to form. If there is alot of bleeding, you may have a larger hematoma. In most cases, they can be monitored and will resolve on their own after 2-3 months. If is causes discomfort, then you may need evaluation by your doctor.
