Even with people the "bruise easily" we expect most bruising to occur in the arms/legs because in the even of trauma, we try to protect our core body from injury. Spontaneous bruising in the core/abdomen can potentially be worrisome. If it is fairly large and he has back pain, I would try to get examined by a doctor or at least speak with one soon in more detail. ...Read more

Please have an immediate medical evaluation. A high white blood cell count is not typical for a ruptured ovarian cyst, it is concerning for infection. ...Read more

Following my car accident, I am constantly exhausted, with substantial bruising on right breast & lower belly. Is this normal or not?

At the least, you may be suffering mild ptsd which will either fade or might move to to seek a bit of therapy to break it. Fatigue is often a consequence of ptsd or other anxiety. Heal well! ...Read more
