Facial injury, bruising, hard lump on cheek bone, pain on touching, numbness. Normal healing process?
I got hit in the face by a softball 2 weeks ago, and my bruising is all gone, but for a week now I have a hard lump on my cheek bone that extends upwards toward under my eye with alittle discoloration on the lump. And Its very painful to touch. Also alittle numbness as well on the lump. My question is, is this a normal process of healing or should I be concerned?
