could this be a blood clot??
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.

Hi!
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!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
