Bruises Become Painful Lumps

Bruises Become Painful Lumps

I have some bruises but the usually go away. Now they become swollen painful lumps. This is new. Should I worry?

Sounds like they are becoming hematomas. That needs to be looked into by a physician.

I would have them checked out by a doctor.

I think we’re all in the same boat. I bruise very easily, bruises are lumpy, painful, and they stay for weeks! Most of the time the ones on my legs leave ugly brown marks that don’t go away. It’s hard living in Florida and wearing shorts when your legs are covered with bruises and brown patches.

I get these bruises that turn to painful knots under the skin on my legs. Good to hear others talk about getting them also. This has been very helpful

That happens when I get bruises on my legs, it feels almost like a golf ball under my skin and boy is it painful. It eventually goes away but it takes about 3wks for me. I even have brown scars from some of them.
