blood clot in finger
20 years ago i injured my ring finger in a tangled rope on a horse and i have developed a blood clot in this finger. About 6 months ago i had a blood clot in same finger but it went away on its own, this clot is much bigger. What are the risks in this, if any?

Hi!
If you have had a blood clot for 20 years, chances of this causing any problems are less. Usually a bleed in the finger gets collected in the space below the skin and becomes cut off from rest by a capsule. There is usually no connection with a blood vessel. So though it may look separate from the rest of the finger, usually it causes no problems. This at times dissolves—like the one you had recently, and at times persists.
However, do have your doctor take a closer look. Take care!
