What are the chances of an abscess if arm feels sore without itching or pain?

hello , i am a steroid user and i recently was doing my injection this morning around 9-10 and i went a bit ruff with it , it feels like i hit a vein and it collapsed but im not for sure . as i do not know what a collapsed vein would look like. but now im reading about abscess and i am getting a bit worried but i am not 100% positive one will form . its not exactly hot to the touch to where i can tell the differene in the heat from anywhere else on my arm it doesn't itch and doesn't hurt unless im using that arm and even then it just feels soar. what are my chances that this ould be a abscess?
