Can you get a blood clot in your palm she has a purple spot and she says it burns and itches?

Broken blood vessel?: This sounds like a broken blood vessel, which can be quite painful when it occurs under skin that is tightly attached to the tissues below. It can happen from minor injury that just happens to hit the vessel in a certain way; even clapping can do it. If that's what this is, the pain will be pretty much gone within a few hours, although it will take a few days for the bruise to fade. ...Read more

Look For A Pattern: Life is full of (to quote a famous person)'bumps in the road.'But you keep driving and find out if there's more bumps down the road. Or, you see a cloud in the sky. Is it gonna rain? You gotta see if more clouds collect (or check the weather report--would that there were a clotting report).So it may happen once or twice then no more. But if it repeats and turns into a consistent pattern, it's doc time ...Read more

The: The timing makes all the difference. As a fracture is healing, it lays down abundant new bone, called callus. Over time, the bone will remodel and the bump will go down. The callus usually forms within a couple of months, but can take over a year to remodel.

If the bump came on suddenly and was associated with severe pain, then you may have a hardware failure. If the bone doesn't heal, the metal will fatigue, sort of like bending a paperclip until it breaks. Once the bone heals, it absorbs the forces around the metal and repairs itself.

I would talk to your surgeon and have the area evaluated and x-rayed. ...Read more

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?

Unlikely: 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.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
