A 23-year-old female asked:
I have noticed a big bruise on my inner elbow & it's swollen. It doesn't hurt at all & I don't remember hitting it on anything. What is this? Why?

Be seen: A bruise usually indicated internal bleeding, and so if you are having spontaneous bleeding occuring, I would definitely be seen to make sure you have not developed a disorder of your blood/ clotting system.
