Bloof clots?

Patient

Q: Hi. Have a question about blood clots... I've got a question about blood clots....... When i was 16 i had a really bad car wreck and a week or two later a lump came up on my right leg, like my shin. I don't remember it having a bruise from the wreck and at that time it didn't hurt and was never red or anything. It was just there ya know? And I went in to see my regular doctor at the time and all she did was look at my leg and ran her hand across it to feel it and said that's a blood clot. Freaked me and mother out! But she told me that it was stuck on a muscle and that it would never move... is that true? It's still there today(i'm now 23) on my right leg on my shin but here lately it's been aching a lil around where the lump is. Just a dull-ish type pain that doesnt hurt all the time just like a few times a day and feels like you need to rub on it like a sore muscle or something. The lump itself doesn't hurt if you push on it or anything. I suppose I'm just worried about it... What do you think?
