Do intracranial hematomas heal on their own?

Small amounts of hemorrhage can resolve spontaneously.
However, if the hematoma produces a significant occupying effect, with supratentorial hemorrhage greater than 30 ml, subatentorial hemorrhage greater than 10 ml or a brain herniation condition, emergency surgery is required. Intracranial hematoma is a collection of blood formed by ruptured blood vessels in the brain or between the brain tissue and the skull after brain injury, which can produce pressure on the brain tissue and is a more serious disease that requires timely treatment. For conscious patients with low bleeding volume and minor cranial injury, they can be treated conservatively in the hospital by symptomatic hemostasis and cranial pressure lowering treatment and close observation of the change of condition.
