Hard knot in the bend of arm above injection site, had blood drawn for thyroid check. Anything to worry about?

Had routine blood drawn for thyroid check and a few other things yesterday and almost immediately after I left the drs office, I noticed a large hard knot in the bend if my arm above the injection site. No bruising or pain per say, just a large knot. In all my years of routinely checking my thyroid and giving blood I can t recall having this happen. Is it anything to worry about?

Hi, Emalynshockey,
thanks for query.
Nothing to worry.There might be exravasation of blood i.e.blood leaking from the vein in that area.
Gradually it will be absorbed.
You can apply ice on it.
Ok and bye.
