    Lump on cheek bone

    I fell and hit my cheekbone on the bumper of my car. I think my ankle turned and I had on "heels." Of course it swelled but not too severely as I quickly applied ice. The bruise and consequently bleeding left me with a black eye which has slowly faded over the last 2 1/2 weeks. I am concerned about the lump in my cheek where I think the point of contact was. It is slightly painful to the touch and is still blue. Does the lump slowly go away?

    Re: Lump on cheek bone

    Guess I will have to reply to this myself! I did get an answer. Thankfully, my husband had an appointment with my doctor and he asked him if I needed to make an appoinment for him to look at my cheek. He described the injury and lump to him. The doctor said my body would heal the lump one cell at a time. He also said this is a long process and my body may give up. My lump is now 4 1/2 weeks old and it is smaller than when I posted the first message.
