What causes bruise on stomach of a child?

Hi, I discovered a bruise on the stomach/side of my four year old son s stomach, about less than an inch above his hip bone. He d complained about pain there. So when I applied pressure to it, I felt a lump under it. Is this normal for an injury? He is very active (has two older brothers) and is getting bumps and bruises almost every day!

Hi,

It is very much normal for an active child to get hurt especially when he had two brothers. Lump is normal after injury, so don't worry.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Lingamurthy Itha, Pediatrician
