Lump under skin after falling: What is it?

A few weeks ago, I had gotten sick. A few times, I fainted. Not pleasant. I got a few injuries (I hit my head, I chipped my tooth, I hurt my knee -- all from different "faintings"). All but one is cleared up.

The first fall kind of hurt my arm. It was a little scratched up and it bled a little. There was a bruise from it, too. I thought there were no problems, but now, there is a weird lump underneath my skin. It's rather large, and invisible. It doesn't hurt, but it really annoys me.

I've searched online as to what it could be, but it's hard to explain it to search for it. So I was wondering what it could possibly be. Also, is it anything to worry about? Even if not, will I be able to get it removed?

Thank you!

Re: Lump under skin after falling: What is it?

It could be where the blood sort of congealed into a lump. I can't remember the word for it though. I once fell down some stairs and bruised my butt (it looked lik ground beef for a bout a week!). It healed up but I developed a lump under the skin about the size of a golf ball. After about a year of it bugging me (I could feel it when I ran, or sat - it got very uncomfortable) I went to the doc and he told me it was what I said above. I had to have it surgically removed.

Maybe if you go see a doc about it now he can clear it up before it gets any worse.
