Could bump on shoulder indicate internal bleeding?

I m on pradaxa and I was horse playing with my girl and she threw a cup at me which hit me in the front of my shoulder around where the clavicle meets the upper arm. it is very painful but there is a large bump that has formed. I know that I ve been warned about a head injury but should i be alarmed that this could be a serious injury like internal bleed.

Hello,

It could be a contusion only. You can go for an ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
