I have a bruise on my forearm that appeared spontaneously. This is not uncommon because I am on Coumadin, but this one has a painful nodule under it that you can feel when you touch it. My nurse came today and said to watch it in case it could be a blood clot. Do you think that is possible? It is not red or warm, but it is painful to the touch.

Here you go...

Got it--thanks

How long have you had it?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
A couple days I think, although I am not positive. The nurse saw me yesterday and thought it looked worse today. I am not sure about that. It doesn't move and she said it feels bouncy or spongy (something like that). Touching it hurts. I have no idea how it got there.

OK

Not a clot problem here--just a hematoma--a pool of blood under the skin along with the bruise

That's nothing serious and it will resorb in about a week

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
