Jelly bean like lump on arm, blood clot?

My mother fell this afternoon and now has a bruise on the outside of her lower arm with a jelly bean like lump that moves around. It is in the same vicinity as a vein .. Could this be a blood clot and should she see a doctor right away... she is 80 years old.

Could be a blood clot. I'd suggest to apply some cold compresses at the site by slightly pressing it.

If no improvement in a couple of days, can send her to be checked by a physician.

Hope it helped!
