Lump on vein - left arm on crease - Please Help?
Hi, i noticed the other day I have a lump the size of a tic-tac on my vein on my left arm right by the elbow crease. (I don't thing it is not a lypoma). I can see that it is blue'ish green'ish in color - same as the vein. I went to the doctor and he told me it wasn't pulsing, and to just put heat on it. He mentioned that I could have gotten it from an IV - but I had the IV in more than a month ago - so I am not sure if that could still be the reason. I've been squishing and moving it around and now it seems to burn/sting (but it usually doesn't), but my arm is somewhat achey. Should I be worried?!? Please help!

The condition you are describing is known as phlebitis, or thrombophlebitis. This is the inflammation of a vein, with or with out blood clots inside the vein. Phlebitis is a common condition, and generally gets better without treatment. In your case, it is probably caused by the presence of the IV catheter in the vein, which may damage the lining of the vein. This stimulates the body's protective blood clotting mechanisms. This kind of small, local blood clot does not have the same potential consequences as blood clots in other deeper and larger veins in the body, such as those in the legs. These "deep vein thromboses" may break off and go to the heart and lungs. The problem you have can appear even 6 months after IV. The only treatment usually necessary is for the symptoms. You may try anti-inflammatory medicine, such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen for pain, or local heat. If the condition worsens, especially if the area of redness increases or you begin to feel unwell, you should definitely seek medical attention.
