hematoma

he·ma·to·ma

/ˌhēməˈtōmə/

Noun

A bump or mass formed when blood collects in the skin. It can be palpated. It will turn dark blue or black in color as the blood loses the oxygen it was carrying. The mass can put pressure on pain receptors in the skin, causing them to be quite tender sometimes.
