Common Questions and Answers about Lump in vein in arm


Avatar n tn While trimming some bushes in my yard, one of the thorns on the bush (thorn was about 4" long) poked me on the inside of my arm. Stabbing me in one of the veins in my forearm. Now I have radiating pain up to my shoulder, a black/blue lump at the injury point that is raised(puffy) and very tender. Should I be concerned about blood clots or anything else?
Avatar m tn I`ve got a friend who has a drug use problem and 2 weeks ago got a lump in her arm after using meth via needle. It is a hard lump, no discoloration of the skin. when the arm is outstretched the muscle down the inner arm cramps up. She refuses to go to a doctor. What could this possibly be?
252440 tn?1189759431 I notice on the same arm that my veins look a little swollen and that there was a lump on my vein just under the skin. I am on heavy pain killers from a back injury and I'm not sure if that may be the caused since I been on the medication for over a year now. It doesnt hurt when I touch it but it aches pretty bad. Its not sore it just aches.Can someone help.
Avatar n tn Today I noticed a purple lump on my forearm about a centimetre in diameter and raised about two millimetres. Within 10 mins of noticing it the lump stayed at one centimetre in diameter but went back almost flush with the skin? It doesn't hurt when I touch it and it looks like it is directly above a vein. Can anyone help with this one please?
Avatar m tn Also, she referred me for an ultrasound/mammo. Told me to keep a diary of the changes in lump size and pain in the meantime. In addition, she thinks stress and possibly anxiety is an important factor behind all of these the symptoms. I've recently graduated from uni, and am currently looking for jobs, which is causing me stress. I also do not have insurance, so I don't want to burden my parents with health bills (cue the stress).
Avatar n tn I ran it inder hot water and applied epsom salt and it started to get a lump (10 mins later lump is not there) but my arm is still numb @ inj. site. Will numbness stop? should I be worried? I do know I hit a nerve there a few hours earlier, could I have aggrivated the area when missed shot?
Avatar n tn Hi Welcome to the forum! Pain and swelling in arm can be due to either venous pooling or due to lymph pooling. Vasculitis, thrombophlebitis and lymphangitis should be ruled out. The other possibility is deep vein thrombosis. You should check your under arms and breast for lumps. Please consult your PCP and try and get a referral for a vascular specialist. Also fix up an appointment with your gynecologist (if you are a lady) for breast examination. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn The tech could not find my vein and finally when she did, she started injecting the contrast and then said she'd blown my vein. When I asked her what it meant, she said, oh your arm will get bruised. She then called in another technician who found another vein, injected the contrast and the test was done. When I got home, I noticed that my arm was bruised and swollen on the side that the vein was blown. It's been three weeks and my arm still hurts to the touch and it's still swollen.
Avatar m tn Today there is a marble size lump on my wrist and it hurts severely and the vein has a hard lump again. I do plan on going into the doctor tomorrow and seeing my regular doctor because it is causing too many problems with my hand and arm. Is there any suggestions to help take care of this?
691614 tn?1227468251 The nurse had a difficult time getting the needle in (guess the vein was slippery). In any event, it hurt very badly going in and a month later there is still a bruise where she put the needle in a little further down my arm. My vein is hard, and there is a hard lump where my elbow crease is.... it's not hurting at all anymore. I'm just assuming she damaged the vein a little, Maybe there is some clotting going on.... but I assume it will go away.
Avatar m tn Hi I'm 28 and four days ago I noticed I had a a sore bulging vein in my left breast from the armpit to the nipple, two days after that it became more sore and my left arm started to get a numb feeling and sore under my armpit Any ideas please help
Avatar f tn I've had a round lump/bulge under my right armpit for the past 3 months that is only visible when I raise my arm. It's about 1 inch in size and has not changed in size over the last 3 months. When I try to feel it, I cannot feel any palpable lump. It is only visible as a bulge when I raise my arm. Is this something I need to be concerned about? I'm 30, female, and not overweight. I lost my health insurance and cannot go to the doctor. Thanks for any replies.
Avatar n tn Hi Bob, Have you gotten any further in diagnosis of your problem or have you gotten better? I'm experiencing exactly the same symptoms as you have. (Although I'm 40 years old, female, and otherwise healthy as far as I know). I went to the doctor, last Thursday, because I felt a painful lump in my right armpit.
Avatar f tn was drained from under my armpit, and today while checking the area I see there's a vein that goes from the lump (the lump is still there even after drainage, just not painful and a lot smaller) to the area between my shoulder and elbow. I can follow it for a few inches before it gets lost in my arm. I touched the vein and it hurts, with the pain being very similar to the pain I get when stretching my arm over my head. I've looked everywhere with what this could be and I've found nothing.
Avatar n tn The bubble feeling took like 5 seconds and went up my arm and i haven't felt it since but i have a lump over my vein in arm crease now. I dont know if it could be related but I also have a appt for cardiologist as i did a drug study and something came up on heart monitor and i get chest "pain" more like pressure and light headed. I do have appt booked for heart but am wondering if the lump is more than a cyst.
Avatar f tn Several causes can produce a lump in males and investigations need to be done particularly if the lump is painless. My guess is that this lump could be due to hormonal imbalance. Also certain medications, steroid supplement and marijuana use, have been linked to Gynecomastia which can present with enlarged breasts or a lump under one or both areolas.
Avatar f tn I have a lump on my underarm. It is not painful but it is ugly and it makes me very self conscious. When I got pregnant it really got big and filled with milk my doctor said it was breaast tissue that traveled into my armpit and that as long as it didn't hurt it really wasn't anything to worry about. It just looks like extra baggy skin and as a result I can't wear sleeveless tops. I've never known anyone else who has this to ask what they think or feel.
Avatar n tn It hurts the worst between my shoulder and my elbow in my upper arm. If I press on it even gently my hand goes numb. When I am sitting in a chair and I let my arm relax I feel pain in the entire arm and my hand starts to go numb. It had triggered a couple of killer migraines and for these I take Maxalt. I took one the othr day thinking that a headache was comming and it made the symptoms in my arem a bit better for a while. There is a lump about the size of half a lemon directly over the muscle.
201897 tn?1245845934 I did, however, notice the vein in question was hard to the touch in areas in my arm (particularly where the acute pain radiates from) and in my armpit. Since I could feel the catheter moving through the armpit area during insertion (that was highly unpleasant), once again I'm wondering if they didn't at least damage the vein. The guidewire also literally crumpled during one attempt. The last 2 inches of it were all zig-zagged (I looked - bad idea). Again, more opportunity for damage?
Avatar n tn Hi my son has developed a lump in his right upper arm just above his elbow. He is 16. I've been told it is a Thrombosed Vein. I just wanted to ask if any other doctor has come across this in the upper body. The doctor I took him to said he had never seen it before in the upper body and cannot explain how it got there. Does not know if any kind of injury can cause it.
Avatar m tn I am a bit worried that maybe all of these enlarged lymph nodes in my arm, arm pit and breast area are connected and may mean breast cancer or a tumor.
Avatar f tn Hi, I recently found a chord like lump that runs from my armpit to behind my areola. Mammogram and Ultrasound were done last thursday and the Radiologist said no cancer, but he couldn't tell me what it is. Mentioned a thrombosed vein possibly, which there is nothing you can do about, but told me after several years the pain could possibly decrease. And recommended against a biopsy or futher diagnosis. There is no apprent blood flow, but it's about 6cm long and painful to the touch.
Avatar n tn The lump does not seem to be movable. Interestingly, when I raise my arm above my head, the lump becomes much less obvious to the touch, and when my arm is hanging at my side the lump seems to come back - almost as if the lump is related to vascular pressure. Also, if I rub the lump, I can almost massage it away, but then it comes right back within 30 seconds. There is no vein visible through the skin near the lump.
