DVT upper extremity: It could be a blood clot in the superficial or deep veins or both superficial and deep veins and the only way to know is to get a noninvasive scan called a Duplex venous ultrasound. I suggest that you get one as soon as possible. ...Read more

Upper Arm DVT?: This can be a sign of an upper arm deep venous thrombosis (dvt). These are somewhat unusual in a young lady, so certainly I agree with the possibility of a thoracic outlet syndorme (tos), particularly a sub-entity of it called "effort thrombosis" or "paget-schroetter syndrome." this is often associated with swelling of the arm, bulging veins, and a feeling of arm heaviness. ...Read more

If: If you had a bruise in this area a week or so ago, you may just be feeling the induration (hardness) caused by the inflammatory response to blood in the soft tissue of your leg. This can take several weeks to finally resolve (warm packs may hasten healing).
Even if this is a clot, it probably doesn't represent any particular health hazard. Superficial clots -- the ones you can feel beneath the skin of your leg -- aren't usually dangerous. The clots that can send fragments into your circulation, and thence to your lungs, are those located in the deep veins of your leg (hence the term "deep vein thrombosis"). Symptoms of deep vein thrombosis, or dvt, can be pretty vague: swelling or a sense of fullness in the leg, aching, or redness may be the only signs of a dvt, and many times not even these signs and symptoms are present. Once a DVT forms, there's no way to accurately predict whether you'll have a pulmonary embolism (lung clot), although clots that extend above the knee tend to fragment and embolize more often than those below the knee.
If you did have a pulmonary embolism, it could affect your heart rhythm, but other symptoms could also occur: shortness of breath, anxiety, chest pain, dizziness, passing out, or even cardiac arrest and death.
I've attached a couple of links that might be of interest to you. Again, the lump you feel in your leg is probably not dangerous, but see your doctor if you have any concerns.

Veins in hands with hard lumps... Could they be blood clots?

Treat the thromboph: Anytime the veins are inflamed, there is a potential for thrombosis and thrombi can break off and travel to the right side of the heart and from there to the lung. However, the balancing system of thrombolysis can dissolve the thrombus and anticoagulant drugs can prevent it from forming in the first place. Not every thromboembolus leads to death, especially if you have healthy lungs. ...Read more

Experienced hands: If something can be felt but not seen then often a clinician can determine the most likely diagnosis by palpating the area in physical exam. Superficial blood clots or varicosities are easily palpated, but more serious deep venous thrombosis usually are not. Cysts, lymph nodes, and a variety of skin nodules can be found behind the knee too. ...Read more

Could a bulging vain in my forehead above my left eye be a blood clot? I read on a website that it may be a blood clot and to treat it with heat.

Not blood clot: If or if it's best to see your eye doctor. Chances are high that is not a blood clot and often blood clots are not visibly seen by the naked eye. It's microscopic and small and the tissues around it could appear swollen (ie, blood clot in lower leg, DVT). Bulging veins alone don't indicate that a blood clot is present. Please see your eye doctor soon to confer & alleviate your worry. Be well! ...Read more
