I have a broken blood vessel in the ball of my hand.  It is the size of a large pea and tender to the touch and aches constantly. Been there 3 weeks.

May need drainage.: What describe sounds like something called a hematoma or trapped blood under the skin especially if the cause was secondary to trauma. Usually this would be raised with surrounding blue or yellow-green skin. If you have had for 3 weeks, this may require drainage or evacuation under local anesthesia. You should see a general or hand surgeon. ...Read more

How+to+treat+broken+blood+vessel+in+hand top of hand very swollen and moving into wrist?

Depends: Best is to see a doctor to evalute and treat. There are no big arteries on top of hand. So the broken vessel is a vein. If the skin is not broken or cut, then you need to take antibiotic Cipro Floxin 500 mg twice daily for two weeks. If the skin is broken, clean the wound with water, apply Bacitracin ointment and clean dressing. Chang dressing every other day till the wound closes. Also take cipr. ...Read more

Unlikely blood draw: unlikely from blood draw as they only take a small amount (1 tablespoon) so unlikely dehydrated. If a simple uncomplicated blood draw then there should have been no damage to tendons or nerves. ...Read more

My boyfriend grabbed my hand and I hit the palm kind of hard could I have broken a blood vessel or maybe just sprained it?

My boyfriend grabbed my hand and I hit the palm kind of hard could I have broken a blood vessel or maybe just sprained it?

Maybe: The first thing I have to say is that of the hitting incident was with malice, you need another boyfriend. If you were playing around, then yes, you could have a minor injury that requires no treatment. A major injury would likely be noticed by severe pain or swelling. If this is the case, go to an urgent care center or ER for an evaluation. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Blood vessel pop on top of my left hand should I get it check out?

Blood vessel pop on top of my left hand should I get it check out?

Supportive care: Rupture of veins are not uncommon. Keep a vigil eye on it. If there is no expansion of blood under the skin, then it should resolve over time. The skin may turn yellow/blue for about two weeks (ecchymosis) , but then should subside. If you are not sure, then have a physician check it out. ...Read more
