Is it normal for my arm to be bruised and sore after giving blood 2 days ago?

I had to have blood drawn and the site where he took the blood from (the crease of the inside of my elbow) is bruised and there looks like a lump under the skin. Should I be concerned?

    Yes sometimes mine get the same way. My husband is a lab tech, and he said that it sometimes is the way the needle was inserted. You do not need to be concerned it will go away in a few days. If it does not go away then I would have a doctor look at it.

    it’s normal to be bruised. but the lump is unusual. you’d better see a doctor if it doesn’t disapper in a day.
