How was your hematoma diagnosed?

Comment from: Gigi Binoy, 35-44 Female (Caregiver) Published: November 27

In June there was a swelling associated with bleeding inside the skin on left arm above elbow. It was reddish, painful. Now my middle finger cannot be folded easily.

Self diagnosis of a Hematoma below the right knee from a fall. Two days after the injury the lump is still there and about as hard (and larger) than the knee cap. No bruise or pain when walking; only a lump that is slightly painful to the touch. I've been using the RICE method and I eventually expect to see the blood flow down my shin and into my foot, perhaps causing a bruise there before it fully heals.

I was in a car accident and had head injuries. Until now, I never have been to a medical check-up. I don't know how long the hematoma will last, and was wondering if it is possible that it will be gone without any medication.
