Treatment of seromas
A large seroma is ballotable. That means if you put your fingers on one side and press on the other side with your other hand you feel a wave of fluid on the first side. Smaller seromas will not produce this sign in which case the best way to find out is to get an ultrasound of the area. If they seroma is large it should be drained. Sometimes that is best done by the radiologist. If it is smaller it may be watched to see if it goes away on its own.
