Could I lump in upper leg be a blood clot even though I am on. I medications, 28 yrs old; have not traveled? Concerned about up coming trip.
If suspected a clot, we need to do an ultrasound of the area. But, I am not sure what you meant by taking medications. If you are taking blood thinners and the levels are not within the required range then you still have a chance to develop a clot.

I hope this helps. ...Read more
