I have a lump and pain in vein on hand where I recently had an i.v. I have a history of DVT and pe. Could this be a clot? Should I see my doctor?

Maybe: This could be a local superficial phlebitis from the IV. Not uncommon at all. A small area of clot and inflammation or irritation that will go away. Warm compresses may help. I would not seek any further help unless it gets worse. Could also be a hematoma as another physician noted. This too will go away with time. ...Read more

Why are the veins in my hands bursting? What causes this?

Why are the veins in my hands bursting? What causes this?

Weakened vein walls: It is normal for hand veins to become thinner (and therefore more prone to bruising marks, i.e."bursting") as you age. The skin overlying the hand veins also thins rather dramatically with older age, making the veins more prone to bruising w/ mild trauma. Blood thinners, such as Aspirin or plavix, (clopidogrel) increases the incidence of this. I expect the veins are not "diseased" and should not be treated. ...Read more
