I have a couple tiny lumps in the veins on the back of my hand. They don't hurt. What could they be? Blood clots?
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you but blood clots are unlikely. You may watch and wait, if the lump doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other lumps become enlarged, or you develop fever, or lose weight, you should see a doctor.

I have a blue protruding vein (1cm bump) near my wrist for over a year now. Does this mean I now have a history of forming blood clots, so I should not take meds such as birth control?
