Welcome to ehealthforum.
It could be thrombosis (blood clot) or thrombophlebitis (infection associated with blood clot). Do not press or massage the area. Revisit your treating doctor for a check, you might need anticoagulant ointments to help with it if it is due to blood clot. You might also need antibiotic cover to treat infection if present.
