What is a hematoma?

Blood travels through your circulatory system in veins and arteries, delivering oxygenated blood to all organs. Then, the blood travels back to your lungs for more fresh oxygen as the cycle continues. Your body has amazing recuperative powers, and minor cuts and bruises will often heal on their own.

Accidents involving lacerations and physical trauma may cause serious internal bleeding. A hematoma occurs when blunt force trauma or a penetrating injury causes a large amount of blood to pool up somewhere inside the body.

Can hematomas affect the brain?

Yes, subdural hematoma and epidural hematoma are two types of brain injuries caused by blunt force trauma to the head and upper body. Bleeding in the tissue surrounding the brain may result in life-altering neurological damage. Surgical intervention is often required to treat these conditions.

Symptoms of subdural hematoma and epidural hematoma include:

  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Drowsiness
  • Paralysis
  • Seizure
  • Coma
  • Loss of motor skills

Symptoms of subcutaneous hematoma include:

  • Bruising
