About 3 weeks ago I fell down the stairs. I ended up with a huge bruise and some swelling just above my elbow. The swelling eventually went after about 4 days and the bruise has now gone altogether but I have a hard invisible lump about 1 inch across under the skin . Should I get this looked at or will it go away on its own?
I got kicked in the forearm during martial arts sparing and had a huge bruise. It was tender to touch and bruise lasted almost 2 weeks. Normal so far. After that I felt a small lump near bruise site that cause sharp pain when touched. After messing with it the other day, overnight the area swelled to larger than a golf ball size. It hurts to push on it or if I lean on a table or desk. Not hot to touch and not bruised or red. Swelling went down a bit in the last 3 days. Should I wait it out?
I tripped over a 2 inch raise in the sidewalk and got a scrape 2 inches below the left kneecap and a huge swollen lump 2 inches below that on Tues. night 9/11/12. I am on warafin. I called the doctor and they told me to skip one day of warafin medicine. The swelling has gone down from 3/4 inch to 1/2 inch and from a 3 inch area down to a 1 1/2 inch area. I have been icing the leg on and off since Tuesday night. Should I be doing anything differently? I keep the leg raised at night when sleeping and at home during the evening before bed. I put an ace bandage on it durning the day but it bothers me and the area (lump) is still warm to tthe touch. Do I need to go in and have the doctor look at it? I take blood thinners for chronic a-fib and I am a 57 yr. old female. Thank you. Alison
