It depends a lot on how big the hematoma is and what the cause is. The common name for a hematoma is a bruise - a collection of blood under the surface of the skin.

However in people who experience persistent unexplained bruising, large bruises or bruises which take a very long time to heal, it is worth seeing a doctor to check whether blood clotting function is normal. In instances where you know you have done something which is going to cause a bruise, applying ice or a cold-pack to the area affected as soon as possible will reduce the amount of bruising which occurs.
