It is almost certainly a hematoma, in english, a collection of blood or some other serum type thingy.

This soon, these things are rarely anything serious.

Of course, as always, when you see your doc, talk about this.

Hugs, Shirlann

I had an MRI guided biopsy three weeks ago. Still have bruisng--especially blue/black in spots--and big hematoma. Surgeon told me the hematoma could take a few months to go away completely. I wasn't too sore, though, after a day. A little twinge now and then.

Hang in--all of this is normal--although a nuisance, I'm sure.

Julie: Could it just be scar tissue? I don't know if it can form that quickly or not, but I know that I have a spot next to my last biopsy scar that feels hard too but is scar tissue. Just a thought. As far as soreness, my doctor's office said it can be tender for up to a year and that it depends on each person. If you are still nervous about it, call your doctor's office.

I had weird sensations after my excision, and it lasted for like 9 months. (I was black and blue for a few months.)

If your soreness is getting worse, esp if its red, or oozing, and/or you are running a temperature, make sure to check with your doc to make sure it isn't infected.

I have been sore for like for four days now. My boob is swollen and is black and blue and just plain sore. I have put ice on it and taken pain tablets but still very uncomfortable! I am seeing my doctor for my results on Tuesday so will speak to him then!

I was sore for about a week. I still have a lump where the biopsy was taken three months later. I think this is unusual. Had a large purple area for a while - now just a small scar and a lump. Keep putting ice on it to keep the swelling down.

I had a biopsy via mammotome yesterday. It really wasn't painful just a little sting when the numbing medicine was placed. I did wake up last night shivering....I assume from a fever as I did not take it myself. I piled another blanket on my bed and went back to sleep. I had the typical headache I get with fevers. When I woke up a few hours later my fever had broke and I feel good today. Has anyone else had an experience such as this? My surgical site looks good, some bruising as expected, but all in all very well. Since it has only been a little more than 24 hours since the biposy I doubt there is infection anyway. Just would like to have others thoughts about this.

Take care,
