Bruise/lump on cheekbone
Hello, I feel about a week ago and although only my cheekbone had direct impact, now the bruising has spanned across my entire eye(my eye lids are purple/green), and cheek(about a quarter of the right side of my face). Although the swelling has gone down significantly, there is still noticeable swelling and I have a lump on my cheekbone that isn't seeming to go away. Could that be a hematoma? What is the best way to care for the bruise and lump?

Hi! Thank You for your query. You could have had a bad trauma. Apply lot of ice compresses. The hematoma will take at least a couple of weeks to settle.
