Brief Answer: Sounds like a hematoma, should go to the ER Detailed Answer: Hello Mr. XXXX, Thanks for posting your query. From your description, I suspect you are having a bleeding inside the cheek, possibly due to some minor trauma while shaving or bathing, or due to rupture of an aneurysm. You need to get to the ER as soon as possible, because such bleeding may continue. Please do not ignore this, go to the emergency room. Meanwhile and en route to the ER keep ice on the area. Hope this will help you. Kind regards.
