Should I talk to my doctor about my hematoma?

Talk to your doctor if you experience extreme pain in the location of the hematoma. The pain may be caused by the pressure exerted by the pocket of blood on the soft tissue, which may cut off the vital supply of oxygen to these areas. Also, consult a doctor if bruises appear without having experienced an injury or if bruises begin to appear in conjunction with bleeding from the nose, gums, eyes, stool, or urine.
