What is Hematoma?
Hematoma is an abnormal collection of clotted blood leakage into tissue, after the wall of a blood vessel has been damaged. This can be caused by blood being drawn, force applied to the skin, or any minor injury. The tissue with accumulated blood that lies under the skin results in a bruised appearance. This gradually does fade, but initially turns yellowish-green as it heals.
Blood vessels often require repair and the body continually undertakes this task, but it fails if the damage is extensive.
What to do and how to enhance the healing process?
Hematoma resulting in bruising is not typically threatening, but it is advised to visit a medical practitioner if you experience:
