See doctor

Leg
Purple spots may be indicative of an illness called idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001562/#adam_000535.disease.prognosis) which involves blood clots forming due to one having too many platelets. It could also be a sign of easy bruising due to anemia, etc. Either way, it requires physician evaluation.

A week ago I discovered a purple bruise-like spot on the back of my leg, but its painless. It is almond-shaped, What could it be? Purpura?

Purpura

this is just a fancy word for a bruise or blood in this skin. It can sometimes happened after minor trauma.unless you are getting a lot of them I would not worry. It should turn yellow and then fade away

I noticed purple spot on my leg and i took blood test. my prothrombin level was 120 (normaly it must be 70-100) how can it effect on my health?

Not likely

Calf
Your "coumadin nurse" or whomever helps you keep range 70-100 should be consulted for advice. They will likely suggest you take 1/2 dose for one evening, as you are not very far from target range.

My mother has a big black purple ish spot on her leg. I dont think its a bruise. I remember my freind said to ask a docotor cause it might be a clot?

Go see her doctor

Dietary_supplements
Take your mom to see her family doctor who can make the diagnosis. There's not enough information w/o seeing spot so all I can do is speculate which does you/her no good. Be sure to bring in all medications (prescription & over-the-counter) as well as dietary supplements eg herbs, pills, powders, etc, as spot may be a drug-drug-supplement interaction.

1 sesame seed size purple spot on toe.2 flat pink dime sized spots on butt, dull testicle ache, had bump on roof for 1 day.Protected sex 4wk ago. Hiv?

Most likely Not HIV

Contraception
You might have another STD (not enough information for conclusive answer was given). 4 wks is not sufficient time for these types of symptoms to show for HIV - at this stage HIV would be more "flu-like" in nature + you used protection. Still if you are concerned see health clinic or regular MD for testing.

Cause of Purple spot on penis?

Penis lesion

Penis
Bruising, or worse lesions on the penis are not normal and I think you will get limited help here on this simple application. Your problem is they type that observation or evaluation is mandatory. Please get in to see your trusted medical advisor soon if this is not resolving spontaneously.
