Hello and welcome to healthcare forum.
After your trauma you might had hematoma formation that is collection of blood.
Now this has healed with fibrosis producing dent at that site.
The dent will not increase is size so, dont worry.

A year ago I fell down a few stairs and landed on my right butt cheek, after the bruising and swelling went away I still have a dent where I landed, when I originally went to my dr. she said to ice it and take ibuprofen, is it too late to go back have something done to help it go away? I am 37 4 11 110 lbs.
I have a large dent on my right butt cheek, I know how it was caused - I fell down the stairs a few years ago and where I fell on the stairs it s left a dent in my bum cheek, I left it for ages because I thought it was just because of the fall but I m quite conscious of it now and I want to find a way to get rid of it, would physio work?

My father is 80 and has recently been diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and a lung tumor. He is in relatively good health otherwise. He had a PET scan of the tumor and all of his other major organs. He also had a biopsy of the tumor. The biopsy showed that the 4 cm tumor is malignant (squamous). The tumor is located in the back lower part of his lung. The cancer is only in the lung tumor. He went to an Oncologist in Philadelphia (where he lives) today for a consultation. The Doctor said that a few things were not an option because of the IPF, including surgery and CyberKnife. The doctor said that CyberKnife was too risky because the lung moves at all times and the radiation could hit the fibrosis areas and cause damage. The Doctor recommended Chemo and has scheduled a 5 hour in-office treatment for next week. He said that if the tumor shrinks enough in a month, he would try to treat it with radiation. Otherwise, he would continue Chemo treatments for 6 months total. I don t like the idea of Chemo treatments for the next 6 months. I have a few questions: 1) Why is the doctor concerned about damaging the fibrosis areas of the lung with the CyberKnife radiation, but not with traditional radiation in a month? 2) Is chemo a good idea for an 80 year old man? 3) I read on-line that Georgetown University hospital has done a few thousand of the CyberKnife treatments on lung tumors, sometimes with other complications involved such as pluracy. Should we send his records to Georgetown U Hospital to get a second opinion and see if the doctors there think that the CyberKnife treatment can work? Thanks. - Dan

I have had a hemorrhoid for at least 10 years. It does not itch nor does it hurt. I have trouble getting everything out because it snakes out. When it is lower down it keeps my anus open and I don't feel it when I use the bathroom. What can I do?
