Injection Swelling

Coming up on a year or TRT and had my first issue with an injection yesterday. I was using an insulin syringe and injecting into my right delt. When the needle went in… it sort of stopped… felt odd… put i finished putting it in anyway. I did my injection and as soon as i pulled the needle out blood gushed out. It was a minor bleed but immediately after the area around the injection sight sort of formed a hard lump. The lump has not grown… but this morning the area around the injection looks discolored. It could be the start of a black and blue mark but looks almost pinkish now. Is this anything to be concerned about. The right delt is somewhat sore but very minor.

you probably just went through a blood vessel or something. it might bruise from the blood collecting underneath the surface of the skin
