contusion definition and meaning

What is a "contusion"?

A contusion is a medical term for a bruise. It occurs when blood vessels under the skin are damaged, usually due to a bump or impact. Contusions can cause pain, swelling, and discoloration of the skin. They are often tender to the touch but usually fade away over time as the body reabsorbs the leaked blood and repairs the damaged tissue.

02

the action of injuring body tissue by an impact or blow, resulting in bruising or hematoma without a break in the skin
