Indent in the hand after hitting table few days back. Reason for persisting indent?

Hi, Two months ago I banged my arm on the side of a table. The side of my right arm about an inch about the wrist bone. This resulted in a very large dark bruise and an indent on my arm. The bruising went away after three weeks, but the indent is still there. I am a 33 year old woman, 108 pounds and I also have thyroid disease and low B12. My question is; why do I still have this indent? Thanks

I have studied your case with diligence.

As per your symptoms there was no history of any injury , and swelling is seen over blood vessel in this case possibility of haemangioma is suspected.

There can be internal fibrosis leading to indentation.

MRI will help in diagnosis.

Till time you can do physiotherapy like ultrasound.
