Question: I have a large lump on my arm from hitting my forearm. When I first hit it, it looked like a vein was bulging out and now it has just turned into a large lump. Should I be concerned about blood clots or anything?

Brief Answer:
Send me pictures of that lumps.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to health care magic,

It could be subcutaneous hematoma or large bruise but I will need to inspect the lesion before coming to any conclusion.

Without examination,I will not be able to say exactly.

So,it would be helpful if you can send me clinical picture of that lump,so that I can guide you better.

Awaiting you response.

Regards,

Dr.Sandip Kabra
