Hello,
Thanks for the query.
It is very common to get bruised after cycling.
As you age your blood vessels,capillaries and skin becomes very fragile and on top of it if there is constant friction,bruising is bound to happen.
When some large amounts of blood is leaked,it can cause small local lump.
There is nothing to worry.
Just take rest and apply local ice.
It should be all right soon.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks

Yesterday I got my nexplanon insertet, and today when I removed the bandage around the arm, I notices that the implant has moved around 2 cm up from the insertion point. I can t seem to feel the upper end of the implant, but can see and feel the lower end. Should I be worried about it going in my arm? I can feel probably 3 out of the 4 cm length of the implant. It hurts a bit, but I think it s just from the regular bruising. Not sure if I should check this out or just let it heal (unless the pain doesn t go away).
