I had blood work done today, and now I noticed a significant lump where the lady took my blood. Should I be worried? it freaking hurts, like a really bad, lumpy bruise. ;-(

No worries...it's probably a blown vein. Sometimes some blood will seep out through the hole that is left under the skin. Yes...it will be sore and probably bruise up, but will heal and shouldn't cause any more problems.
