Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing & treating all types of neurological & other medical conditions including the concerns of “Possible bleeding risk while on blood thinner” you have mentioned here and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns related to your husband.

First I will ask few questions so that I can gather additional information related to your health concerns;

1) Which blood thinner he is on currently? And what dose?

2) How big is the bump, and what is the external color?

3) Are there any other such bumps or any other spots or changes over the skin that are suspicious for bleeding?

4) Is he seeing any blood in the stool or urine etc?

5) Did he have any blood tests done recently?
