Brief Answer:
Can be a small hematoma.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
A small bruise with a white knot can be a small hematoma due to some injury in the area. The white center can be suggestive of a resolving hematoma. In case there is pain and swelling in the area then an infection needs to be ruled out. Otherwise there is no need to worry. This is likely to subside on its own.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Hello. I fell and hit my head exactly 2 weeks ago, resulting in a pretty large hematoma. For the most part it has gone away, with just some minor bruising and a small hard lump about the size of a pea left. It is still pretty tender to touch. I've had some minor headaches the last couple of weeks, but no dizziness or loss of conscoiusness. This morning I woke up with a sharp pain in my forehead that lasted about 2 hours, then slowly went away. Do I need to be checked out or is this normal healing for this type of injury?

Hi,

I fell a month ago and have a large hard hematoma just below and joining my knee. I have had Xrays, nothing broken, I went to an Orthopedic who diagnosed it as a hematoma. What can I do to reduce the size? Is there any danger of blood clots? Thanks
