I fell on my butt on some stairs over one and a half months ago.After having a large ,unsightly bruise(and painful),on my upper right buttock,it has now developed into a huge lump of FAT with a horizontal indentation beneath.It looks like I have a double butt-cheek.There is no longer any pain or discoloration,but is a definite DEFORMITY.How did this happen and what can I do about it?
OMG! I had the same thing happen to me after a slipping on ice and falling on the edge of a stair Dec16. After pain and bruising, alarge lump on my upper right cheek remains and also has a horizontal indentation under it. I assume its a hemtoma --went to PCP who said I need to have an ultrasound done--getting new insurance Jan1 so have not gone yet and its not getting any better. I have researched this and it may nver go away and may need to be surgically removed. I will do this if it means getting rid of looking like i have 2 but cheeks! Plan to go back after Jan1 and INSIST something be done.
