The edge of a chair fell on my leg  4mo. ago. It didnt  bruise or hurt the next day but left  knot. Now it hurts. blood  clot? had neg d-dimer.

D -dimer: The knot may be an organized blood clot under the skin which is not serious but can be a tender lump. A negative d -dimer test doesn't rule out phlebitis however. If there is calf pain,tenderness and swelling, have an evaluation by a physician and, if advisable, a leg ultrasound will be ordered. A tender subcutaneous hematoma can be removed with a small incision. ...Read more

Compression bruise: Makes sense this was a direct result of leaning hard against the ladder. If you experience any numbness associated with the bruising, I would check this out with your local doctor, if things do not totally resolve with some time( 5-7 days), make a point to have things examined by a doctor, and consider some imaging to understand how deep the injury to soft tissue is. ...Read more

Some experts do not even recommend blood thinners for this kind of clots as they often dissolve on their own. You should continue full activity as normal as this hastens improvement. If you have a lot of symptoms then short course of blood thinner is seasonable.. ...Read more
