I had a filly once that was kicked in the neck and got a hematoma the =
size of a small hen egg. Asked my vet to lance it and he replied that he =
would, but the horse would develop a dent in her neck when it healed, =
best thing to do was just wait till it reabsorbed. Well, back then I had =
been every where and seen everything so I said just lance it Doc. He =
did. She still (14 years later) has a dent in her neck you can see from =
100 feet away. Now days I'd just ask for a Vet's advice about proper =
treatment, then take it.

I had a gelding that had a hematoma from a kick in the butt.  Never was
treated.  He had a dent in the muscle for the rest of his life.  He didn't
have a "rear view mirror" so he couldn't see it and I guess that's why it
didn't bother him.
