Had my blood drawn at the hospital a week ago.

Had my blood drawn at the hospital a week ago. When I arrived home I noticed 3 inch blood spot under my skin where blood was drawn. It turned into a bruise and has disappeared, but now itches real bad. What do you think this is , and what can I do to stop the itching?

Had Blood Drawn about a week ago. Allot about 10 tubes. Now I have a lump that has been getting larger for the past 3 days on the underside of my forearm. Feels soft like a bubble but hurts if I push on it. Has a slight redness. Maybe from me pushing on it. Could this be from drawing blood in my upper arm where it bends?

I had to get my blood taken to check my T3 and T4 levels for my thyroid about three weeks ago. I noticed when the nurse was taking my blood that it was taking her longer than it usually does for the blood to collect in the tube. The next day the area where she drew the blood bruised the worst it ever had. I also began to notice that there was a hard many 2 cm lump under my skin two inches AWAY from the spot the needle was inserted. Now, being three weeks later, I still have that bump there and it has not gone down in size. I have read a lot about this online but the only results I find are getting a lump on the exact spot the needle was put in. I just thought it was kind of strange that mine appeared away from it. I was just wondering to see if someone could tell me what this lump is and if it has to do with anything with the blood draw or not. Thanks!

Hey. I got blood drawn a over a week ago for a blood test. Since then i have had some discomfort in my arm. A few days later I noticed discoloration from where the blood was drawn and stretching a few inches up the forearm. I also noticed similar discoloration (however not as intense) in the blood vessels close to the point of blood withdrawal.
