Hi. If your swelling is not increasing in size and you dont have fever or any open wound to cause infection of the hematoma, then i guess you should not worry and just wait for the hematoma to be resorbed naturally. I dont think an MRI would add anything additionally though you may confirm all else is normal. Take some non-NSAID analgesics like tramadol and cold fomentation for pain relief. Thank you.
