How long does it take a hematoma to dissolve? I had a bruise on my hip that went away but the lump is still there? Should I be concerned?

Angela-

If this is squishy, it might need to be drained. If it is firm, it could be scar tissue forming and it will never go away.

There should be no concern about something terrible going on.

I thot that I explained what I thot. I understand the words of your question, but in light of my previous post, I do not know what you are asking. Could you take another shot at it?

Yes, it can. If several blood vessels are ruptured, there isn't enough tissue in the nose to absorb the blood leakage. It will absorb in the tissue under the eyes and cause a visible bluish colored area similar to a "black eye."
