Suggest treatment for bruised lump near the buttocks - Online Doctor Chats
I fell down a few stairs in the middle of January. I had a huge bruise and it burned to the touch for several weeks. The bruise is gone and so is the pain but it seems I have a deformity now. Like the imprint of the stair that I fell on. When I push lump it does not hurt, but it is palpable ugly. is there anything I can do?
Please give me a minute to read your query
Yes, I have read your concern
Where is the location of the lump?
left buttock near crack
sorry about that
yeah it sucks
What is the consistency of the lump?
Is it soft or hard or from?
it feels like adipose
Where do you think it is arising from? Is it the bone? fat? soft tissue?
when I push on it it kind of reminds me of cellulite
It can be a benign cyst
Is there any pus discharge from it?
Is the skin over it intact?
but it wasn't there before the fall
there is an indentation where I fell on the stair
it must be a benign swelling that has developed post the trauma
Is it painful and bothering you?
moved over by the trauma?
not painful but if I sit back on it it is unconfortable
You may want to get it excised
Ideal way would be to go for an excision biopsy
so no therapy will work it out?
This way, the whole lump can be removed and sent for histopathological examination
For soft and benign tumors, surgical removal is the treatment
so there is no such thing as tissue displacement?
medical management is temporary
nothing as such
you need to get the whole lump excised
and I could get a benign cyst from the trauma?
yes, it is possible
and in your opinion there is no other treatment other than excision?
or it can be just that it was insidious in onset
that is right
isnsidious on onset...
excision followed by Histopathological study of the specimen
can you please further explain "insidious on onset"?
insidious means the the swelling just appeared one day
with no obvious reasons behing
ok what is the expected down time for an excision?
not more than an hour
and stitches of course..
would heal in 7 to 10 days time
what kind of MD should I see for such a procedure?
You should see a General surgeon
how long can I wait to get this don?
is there anything wrong with waiting a few more weeks or months?
There is no harm in waiting for a few months
since it mostly looks benign
If your feeling of uncomfort increases, you can go for the surgery accordingly
This can wait a few months
no problem with it
ok great. thank you
take care and get well soon
Do you have any more queries for now?
thanks and have a great night
not now thank you
not now thank you
good day ahead
Bye for now
