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.

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 had acute portal vein thrombosis (PVT) two years ago and was placed on Warfarin . Imaging at that time also confrimed chronic pancreatitis and gallbladder sludge . My gallbladder was removed in March of this year. Now my platelet count is low (since December of 2011 thrombocytopenia with 75,000), and I have chronic brown loose stools that float, and are oily. I have been off of the warfarin for about a year. My gastro doctor says he can do nothing about the stool problem and he will see me in another year. Bone marrow and liver biopsies show nothing (other than some fibrosis and scarring in the liver). Everyone has been so focused on the PVT, I am afraid that perhaps they should be focusing on possibilities of pancreatic cancer. Should I push for more imaging around the pancreas?

Good Day My son has been suffering for almost a year now with hyperinflation, shortness of breath when active and low saturation levels if not permanently on oxygen. He has some form of fibrosis of the lungs from previous infections. He has never had a proper diagnosis of what his condition is but it appears that he has some form of pulmonary dysplasia possibly asthma but he has never been well enough to make a proper diagnosis for asthma. He has very sensitive airways and the right middle lobe of his lung is partially collapsed but we have been told that for the amount of lung that has collapsed, his hyperinflation and shortness of breath seems to be far to much. He is on bronchiole dialators, almost always on antibiotics because he seems to catch any infection very easily and is on permanent oxygen. He will be 3 in March. Is there anything that you can recommend I can do, or something you can suggest that maybe the doctors he has been seeing have maybe overseen, please I am desperate to get my son better. Kind Regards, Steve

I recently had some chest tightening and was seen in an ED. My CXR showed a small calcific density in the left upper lobe. I had a follow up CXR that showed a 2mm calcified granuloma and bilateral basilar atelectasis. My father has idiopathic pulmonary firbrosis. I have been referred to a pulmonologist, but was wondering if this could be fibrosis or some type of cancer. Thanks

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?
