I have pain in my forearm just above recent wrist IV site. Feels like a knot. Could this be a blood clot that I should be concerned about?
Unlikely: It is extremely unlikely that a dull aching in the forearm is coming from a blood clot. It is a very unusual place to get a blood clot.

I have a small lump in my vein In my vein on top of my forearm. I don't recall hitting it. Could it be a blood clot? Should I worry?
What does a blood clot look like on forearm. A bruise-like circle of about a 1/2 inch just showed up; yesterday it was brown and today it is red.?
Varies: Blood clots can produce different presenting symptoms. If it is in the artery, it can cause dramatic pain and even turn the limb blue/black if it blocks important circulation to the rest of the arm. If in the vein, it will lead to swelling in the limb. If you have a bruise, it is likely a small bursted vessel. You may want to consider an insect bite too (spider?) and it may be infected. ...Read more

Assuming you mean in the veins not the arteries.

Deep vein thrombosis of the arm is most commonly seen in hospitalized patients that have certain kinds of long iv's in called picc lines.

Contact the doc who diagnosed the clot and prescribed with what is happening; and if there is much pain at all, or feeling of heat in the skin, discoloration or loss of feeling in your hand, get seen as soon as possible. ...Read more

I saw blood clots when taking injection in my left arm for blood test. Is there any serious problems?
Third time in 12 months with superficial blood clot in left arm. Dr ordered coagulation panel. What to expect?
The Unexpected?: I'd expect that your doctor will inform you that the coagulation panel is OK, unless it also tested for possible 'hyper-coagulable states' (no, not like Texas or Massachusetts).What you have is unusual and should be investigated, of course. Did he tell you to apply warm compress and use Motrin or the like? I assume you don't inject drugs or get repetitive trauma or have something unusual like Lupus ...Read more
