What causes bruised lump on the vein of the leg?

Hi, I was walking in the house, had a sudden massive itchy feeling on my leg. Then when I looked I had come up with a big bruised lump on a vein. Itch subsided immediately but lump hurts. Lessens when I elevate my leg and hurts lots when I put weight on it.
