i am concerned recently i noticed on my lower inside of my calf a discoloration about nickel size and slightly pink , if i push on it , it feels kinda like a bruise but its kinda hard, also i dont know why i didnt check but i also have one almost in the same spot on my other leg and that ones a tad bigger and a lil more pink,.. i really cant think of them hurting recently and from my point of view i dont think they are swollen besides the lumps themselves,. they are also a tad warm to the touch.. could these be bloodclots? or something else?? i also am on birth control. if any information would be appreciated.
If you are on birth control and these are warm and feel like a bruise then yes, this can be a blood clot. Deep vein thrombosis and clot formation is a known complication of birth control pills. Please consult a doctor immediately. You will need to go through complete coagulation studies and a dopplar study of leg veins. Please do not touch or press the area again and again. Take care!
