A lump on my wrist?

I hit my wrist against the corner of a heavy timber crate, now my wrist hurts and a vein is like popped out? I have a lump and a vein bulging out of my wrist and it wasn't there before. I tried to massage it but it hurts. Do I need to go to the doctor? how can I treat it at home?

    Sounds like a seroma — a collection of fluid that builds up under the surface of your skin.  If it does not go away naturally, you might have to have it drained by a doctor.

    keep some ice wrapped on it to help with the swelling.  if it gets worse after a couple days, see a doctor.
