Had IV contrast 3days ago for MRI and arm has dull ache from shoulder to wrist, normal? Did bleed out a little after tech took needle out. Tiny bruise
Arm ache: This does not sound like a reaction to the MRI or contrast and i doubt that you developed a phlebitis from the IV puncture or insertion. Perhaps you were lying in an awkward postion for a lengthy time and sustained some sort of strain or sprain. If you can tolerate nsaids like ibuprofen, this would help. See your md if symptoms persist or worsen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Don't want to alarm, but IMO any mole that misbehaves, including bleeding with minor irritation, should be taken VERY seriously. It is probably not melanoma, but this could be an early warning and you can never be too careful with this disease. It is a killer. And it can be cured if found and treated early. See someone and if they are unimpressed, ask why it bled and what if it IS a melanoma. ...Read more

In april I got an implanon rod inserted in my arm. I have been bleeding two months straight. Will it stop any time soon? Is this a problem?
Possibly and no: The most troublesome side effect of Implanon is what is called breakthrough bleeding. It usually occurs because the progestin hormone in Implanon makes the endometrium layer of the uterus too thin and unstable. The bleeding is unpredictable and may stop. It does not effect the contraceptive effectiveness of implanon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
