Huge very dark purple bruise right thigh discovered 2 days ago and is getting bigger, no pain or tenderness feel a small knot under skin?

Bruise: You don't remember bumping into something? A large bruise without trauma is unlikely. The knot you feel is probably a blood clot under the skin that will dissipate on its own. The medications you listed should not cause your bruise. It will look worse before it looks better. If you think it was indeed spontaneous, you should really have your doctor check a CBC on you. ...Read more

I have always bruised really easy with no blood disorders but a big bruise on my right upper thigh has a small lump under it. Is this normal?

I have always bruised really easy with no blood disorders but a big bruise on my right upper thigh has a small lump under it.  Is this normal?

Bruising: Bruising very easy at your age is not very common but can happen for many reasons including vitamin deficiency ie. Calcium, vitamin k etc. Low platelet count or coagulation factor deficit can cause easy bruising and are secondary to genetic disorders or liver disease. You will need further work up to make diagnosis. The lump under is still coagulated blood or hematoma which will reabsorb also. ...Read more

Heparin?: Your doctor may have given you a shot of Heparin in your leg prior to your tubal surgery to prevent blood clots. This may be the bruise that you are seeing. Blood clots typically occur deep in the leg and do not generally cause you to see bruises. Rather, you would usually have a swollen tender and maybe reddened leg. ...Read more

Noticed bruising behind right thigh after a few trips in one month. My platelet count is 229 should I be concerned? Should I do another CBC test?

Noticed bruising behind right thigh after a few trips in one month.  My platelet count is 229 should I be concerned? Should I do another CBC test?

Not likely: It may very well be related to fragile blood vessels in the area. Its unlikely a platelet issue with platelet numbers like that. If you don't have other signs of easy bleeding like bleeding gums, bloody noses, blood in your stool or urine, vomiting or cough up blood, it is incredibly reassuring. In fact, it may just be fragile blood vessels and platelet effects of the ibuprofen you take! ...Read more
