Hello

Thanks for the query

It is unusual for someone to develop blood clot without any reason. Please furnish the following details in order to help you

1. Was there any form of trauma?
2. Are you on any medications?
3. Does it pain more when you walk?
4. Can you attach the blood reports which was done?

Please get back to me, I am awaiting your reply.

No the blood reports are at the lab can't get til next week. The hump on my foot is becoming painful. I went to my dr on Friday and he said I need to see a foot Dr. I just want to know if I should put hot or cold compress on my foot. I think it's related to the blood test because when the nurse put on the turnicut is was really tight and I had to tell her to release it. Maybe I bruised my foot but I can't figure out why I have this bit hump and I had a hematoma in my neck once and they removed it because they thought it was in my
Lump nod but I just banged it while skiing. This thing on my food is almost like a cyst but weird it came in one day right after blood test.

Cold compress

A painful hump means that there is an inflammation going on inside. So please put cold compress on it and not warm. Please approach the foot clinic with your blood test. I would recommend you to get a uric acid test as well to rule out urate crystals.
