Hematoma vs. Hemorrhage

  1. 0 Can someone please help me understand the difference between the two?

    I know there is subdural, extradural,intracerebral hematomas but they seem pretty similar to a hemorrhage so im slightly confused...

    Thanks for any input.

    Hemorrhage just means blood loss; it can be external or internal. Hematoma is an enclosed hemorrhage into a tissue space, whether subdural, epidural, or into a joint capsule. Hope that helps.

    In general Hemorrhage blood loss are running,but in hematoma it's only blood collection and the bleeding stop.
