The tongue is a soft-tissue formation, covered with a specific mucosa, with a multitude of nerve receptors. Its damage is always fraught with complications that can significantly change a person's habitual life. One of such complications is the abscess of the tongue. Recognize the first symptoms and promptly prescribe treatment is the key to successfully getting rid of the problem.
Hematoma is a bruise, when after a rupture or injury of a vessel, blood flows into the thickness of the tissues, forming a cavity.
Classify hematomas in those tissues where the blood has been poured. On this basis, hematomas are intramuscular, under the skull shell, in the brain tissue and others.
With respect to the vessel they are pulsating and non-pulsating. Pulsating hematoma is dangerous because it continues to increase in volume, that is, the outflow of blood from the vessel has not ended.
In the case of pain in the language, most people rush to a mirror with an open mouth. If you can notice a bluish or "bloody" spot in the language, then with a high degree of probability you are dealing with a bruise or hematoma of the tongue.
More often injuries of a traumatic nature in the tongue have the appearance of superficial wounds resulting from a bite (during chewing or epileptic seizure) traumatizing the sharp edge of a broken or carious tooth, bone from food, or sharp objects, such as a fork, pencil, etc.
