PAIN HEMATOMA AFTER BIOSPY
A hematoma, while uncomfortable, is not anything dangerous. I imagine at one time or another you have bumped yourself and had a large bruise (hematoma), or "black and blue," as it is more commonly called. In time, the blood that had collected under the skin breaks down, which accounts for the differenrt colors (purple, red, green, yellowetc.) that a "black and blue" shows as it is healing, and then the products of this breakdown process are gradually reabsorbed into the body.
I believe your doctor has already explained to you why or how it can happen. Besides a bump or being squeezed too hard (pinched or "manhandled"), it can occur when a blood vessel leaks blood,for example, when blood is drawn, some people end up with a large "black and blue" around the vein where the needle was inserted,or, in your case, apparently a vein was nicked during the biopsy.
Just follow your doctor's instructions, and the hematoma should disappear in time. On the other hand, if it becomes larger and extremely uncomfortable, get back in touch with your doctor as it might need to be treated in another way (such as by aspiration).
Meanwhile,best wishes for a benign pathology report from your biopsy!
