Bruise Or Contusion (Definition)
Bruises, or ecchymoses, are discolorations and tenderness of the skin or mucous membranes due to the leakage of blood from an injured blood vessel into the surrounding tissues.

How long does it take for big bruises to dissappear? I had a strong motorcycle accident and fell on my left thigh and now it's swollon n red n purple.
timing to heal: If the bruises are only in the tissues immediately below the skin, then you will see them start to spread out in the first 48 or so hours and then disappear out about a week. Of course the concern is whether or not you bruised the deeper tissues such as the muscle. In that case, while it appears normal on the outside, it may take up to several weeks for the pain and abnormal unction to disappear. ...Read more
I have a large bruise on my leg from tripping and hitting it hard on a chair it is purple around, red in middle, has lots of white lines,what is this?
It is what you called it. The white lines probably reflect fascial bands in the tissue. Give it time to heal by itself. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Possible Biopsy: Given your age, the lesion is most likely benign but without seeing it, it is difficult to tell. It could be an unrelated bruise from minor trauma.

Red bump: Hi KavitaB, the red bump is likely a bug bite, pimple, or blocked follicle. The 'spots' around it are from the tiny blood vessels surrounding the wound becoming engorged with blood to help with the healing process. If it goes away in a few days then no big deal. However, if the purple spots start to spread or if the red bump becomes larger, painful, or starts to ooze (pus), then go to your doctor ...Read more
