Hit lower stomach. Was bruised. What is the knot there?

Hello. Last Monday my son, which is 6yrs old, fell on scooter and hit is left lower stomach on the round end of the bar. It almost instintly bruised. It is a round bruise, which was real dark. He said it does not hurt now only if you push on it. It looks lighter now, but I rubbed my fingers across it and it feels like there is a knot there. Should I have him checked out? He says it does not hurt only if you push it. Thank you for our help. Wendy M.

Hi Wendy,

Please take him to a General surgeon and get him examined. Any trauma to the abdomen can cause a blunt injury to the internal abdominal organs specially the spleen.

An ultrasound scan of the abdomen will rule out any possibilities like this and can be managed accordingly.

Hope this helps.
