my son was cleated in the stomach during a soccer game last week...he got a bad bruise which swelled and there was a soft spongy knot. today, a week later, there is still some discoloration but the knot is now very hard. Is there reason for concern?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.I understand your concern.
This is probably a local hematoma at that site.
There is no major concern.
Apply ice packs to the local area and apply thrombophob gel to the local area thrice daily.
For pain give him acetaminophen.
If the swelling increases get an ultrasound done.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
