I have a bruise on my shin and it is turning yellow but still has 2 lumps and hurts to the touch. Is it possible to be a blood clot?

I have a bruise on my shin and it is turning yellow but still has 2 lumps and hurts to the touch.  Is it possible to be a blood clot?

No: The bumps you are feeling are most likely the bruise resolving. When you have significant bruising in the skin, you do have some bleeding and the bloood will clot, just like it does for a cut. In the skin, it becomes tender and sore. This will resolve with time. It is not the type of clot that will travel. If you have pain in the calf or feel short of breath, go to the ER. ...Read more

Noticed a bruise next to shin and swelling around it. Is this just a bruise or could be a blood clot?

Noticed a bruise next to shin and swelling around it. Is this just a bruise or could be a blood clot?

Not a blood clot: Blood clots (the BAD deep venous kind) occur behind the tibia or shin bone within the deep vasculature. Your bruising is more likely due to more direct type trauma with expected local swelling. The hematoma can take several weeks to resolve. a protective wrap may be all that is needed to avoid recurrent injury to the tender area. If pain persists longer than that, orthopaedic evaluation is needed. ...Read more
