Hi Crica,

Not all hematomas require surgical intervention. It depends upon the location, the size, and the severity. By definition a "black and blue" or "bruise" is a hematoma, they usually resolve quickly.

In some cases, yes, intervention is necessary.

You're welcome.

Without knowing all the details I wouldn't even attempt a guess. You indicate you've had surgery, was this the cause of the hematoma? I was thinking more along the lines of a fall or other such "closed" event in my response.

In general, the hematoma is liquid blood that has collected outside of the vessels usually because of a hemorrhage. A bruise (ecchymosis) is a thin layer under the skin. There are many types of hematoma's. They can occur in organs as well and are more of a 3 dimensional thing. In the brain for example you could have a subdural hematoma or an epidural hematoma, just to name a few.

Your doctor is the best resource here. If you are not certain you could always ask for another opinion.

Hope it helps.
