About 2 months ago I took a boxing class at the gym and I thought I pulled a musle in my chest. I just recently went for an x-ray and they found a mass on my right lung. I also had a ct-scan a couple of days ago and I was diagnosed with a lung hematoma which I found out is a bruise. I have to go see a specialist soon because my doctor is concerned that it is still there after 2 months and that there is no change in its size. I have trouble breathing sometimes and there is a constant dull ache in my chest.
Has anyone had this? Whats the next step if the bruse doesn't go away?
If anyone has any answers I will greatly appreciate them Thanks!
Please be careful! I was at work this last Tuesday, and I began to clear my throat as I felt I had mucus that wouldn't go away. I went into the bathroom and spit out a mouthful of blood. Before I could even take a breath, my right lung was filling with blood quicker than I could spit it out. I was choking on my own blood. I was rushed by ambulance to the hospital, where the same thing happened again. I was diagnosed with a hematoma on the lung. I am home now and on an antibiotic. What a frightening experience! I hope you feel better but please be careful.
