hello dear,
thanks for your query at HCM
blood from swelling could be due to hematoma, it means local collection of blood due to repeated trauma in that area.
there is no need to drain , it will resolve on its own.
drainage is needed only if there is pus discharge or cosmotic purpose, if so visit surgeon for proper drainage of the collection this time
