Non occlusive blood clot left leg. Got in shower, slipped on shower mat, hit left shin against shower rail. Bruise and and slight bump. Dislodge possib?

Possible: Clots below the knee only usually do not cause symptoms or significant problem even if they dislodge as they are too small to cause . Some experts do not even recommend blood thinners for this kind of clots as they often dissolve on their own. You should continue full activity as normal as this hastens improvement. If you have a lot of symptoms then short course of blood thinner is seasonable.. ...Read more

Consider CRPS: Dear Amanda, Your symptoms are not typical of normal sprain healing. Pain out of proportion with color and sensation changes in the limb could represent complex regional pain syndrome or reflex sympathetic dystrophy. These conditions respond well to early treatment.

Leg got red and formed a rock hard lump underneath then redness disappeared. on my other leg on thigh have a red/purple patch. What's going on?

See MD: You need to be seen to establish what is going on. I do not understand where on your legs the redness and "rock hard lump " are. Trauma comes to mind, but you may have some blood vessel issue, as an inflammed vein or blood clot issue. Please be seen today in a clinic or an ER. ...Read more

My mom (72) has huge bruise on upper, outer thigh from fall a week ago. Last night, we noticed quarter-size knot/lump in middle of bruise. Blood clot?

Yes: it probably is a hematoma! (Tissue Blood clot) but NOT harmful!! Your Mom should have her blood checked to be sure there is no "bleeding problem"...This can be "sneaky".....(Unless she's on ASPIRIN or another ANTI-COAGULANT) Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

Small bruised knot on front of knee. Calf and thigh burning. Negative ultrasound. Could it be a blood clot?

Small bruised knot on front of knee. Calf and thigh burning. Negative ultrasound.  Could it be a blood clot?

Unlikely: If you have had a negative ultrasound of your calf it is unlikely that you have a deep venous thrombosis,(DVT). DVT's normally cause swelling, pain and redness in the affected calf not in the front of the knee. ...Read more

Got varicose veins in 1 leg. Area just under knee on back throbbing. Got bruises near but it hurts above it. Better (still there) when walking. Dvt?

Baker cyst: An ultrasound is definitive and critical to get. Though what you have sounds like a baker's cyst - a benign fluid filled cyst - pain or swelling in this area can always potentially be a DVT and must have an ultrasound to rule that out. Go to an urgent care and call ahead to make sure they have ultrasound if you are looking for the most economical option. A phlebologist can also check you. ...Read more

I have this bruise that's spreading across my leg I got it yesterday after a motorcycle accident were I was hit by a truck it's numb and spreading to?

Bruising: Contusions often are blood collections under the skin and in the soft tissue after an injury. These can take hours to several days for the visual effects of the injury to come to the skin (bruising). As long as you have already been evaluated after the accident, the bruises coming out are no extra concern. ...Read more

Ankle swollen, Feels fine to touch. Just aches from around my heel, ankle and up my leg alittle. no injury. blood clot?

Not blood clot: Uncertain why you're having this discomfort. It possibly could be related to your level of conditioning. In order to clarify the reason for the aching you need to have an evaluation by your physician and decide what if anything else is going on. It can be due to no specific medical problems and just a part of your normal physiology ...Read more

Went sledding 3days ago & hit my leg on a walking bridge very hard. Can't see any bruises but it indented about a 1/4 inch. Is that an internal bruise?

Went sledding 3days ago & hit my leg on a walking bridge very hard. Can't see any bruises but it indented about a 1/4 inch. Is that an internal bruise?

A Dental Problem??: I saw a guy a while back who hit his head like that and then had a permanent dent in his skull, about the size you describe. So, it may be just that in your leg, unless you have a lot of soft tissue overlying the bone in that area that may have a temporary dent in it. In either case, there should be no serious long term problem. If you have more questions it should probably be seen in person. ...Read more
