Health Insurance for Hematoma
A hematoma occurs when blood collects in a particular area outside the blood vessels, in the form of a liquid within a tissue. A hematoma occurs when the walls of the blood vessel, vein, capillary or artery become damaged and blood leaks into the tissues where it doesn’t belong. There are different types of hematomas: subdermal hematoma, skull/brain, breast hematoma, perichondral hematoma, perianal hematoma and subungal hematoma. According to an article published in 2011 in the Indian Journal of Neurotrama, 76% of patients who had a chronic subdural hematoma had experienced severe head trauma.
Some types of hematoma like the ones that occur in the skull and brain are life-threatening and require immediate medical attention while others are non life-threatening.
Symptoms of a hematoma will vary according to the location and severity of the hematoma. These include:
- Altered consciousness
- Neck stiffness
- Purplish skin/purpura
