Medical care and definitive treatment of a hematoma depends upon its location, what body parts are being affected, and what symptoms are present. For example, a small hematoma of the brain may be observed if the patient is fully awake, while another patient with a head injury in a coma may require an operation. The same may be true with a patient with an intra-abdominal hematoma. If the patient is stable, observation may be appropriate but if are in shock, some surgical intervention may be required.
