if you get hit in the varicose vein and a big bump forms, is it a clot?

Could be: I agree with drs. Isobe and thomas, you certainly could have a clot. Varicose veins are often chronically inflamed and if you hit one, it can become more inflamed. More inflammation can certainly make the possibility of developing a clot more likely. If you elevate your leg and the bump doesn't go down in size and become softer, you should get it checked out.
