Bleeding and Clotting Disorders
Complication from bruise
Five months ago I ran into the corner of a table and bruised my thigh. The bruise has never fully gone away and I have recently noticed an indention in the muscle at the point of the bruise. What could this mean, and can I expect for it to finally fully heal? I am 36 years old and in good health. Thank you for your assistance.
You may have developed a hematoma at the site. Your physician will need to look at it to comment.
