What is a Soft Tissue Hematoma?

Description of the disease:

A soft tissue hematoma is a collection of blood outside of a blood vessel in soft tissue, such as muscles or skin. This can occur due to injury or damage to blood vessels.


Hematomas can be subcutaneous, intramuscular, submucosal, joint, or intraorgan depending on the location of formation.


  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Redness of the skin
  • Feeling of warmth in the area of the hematoma


Hematomas typically occur from bruises, impact, falls, or tissue strain.


The diagnosis of a hematoma is based on clinical symptoms, as well as with the help of ultrasound or X-ray.


Treatment may include applying cold to the hematoma area, taking anti-inflammatory drugs, and physiotherapy.


To avoid hematomas, it's important to avoid injuries and bruises, as well as wear protective gear during sports activities.


For the diagnosis and treatment of hematomas, you should consult an orthopedic surgeon or a surgeon.
