A little unclear as to where you are going with this question.
Certainly one can suspect spousal or parental abuse but there could be a history of trauma or recent cosmetic surgery that may relate to this finding.

In brief: Report bruises to MD
Bruising can be due to physical trauma, but also can be an indication of a serious underlying hematological disorder such as vitamin c or k deficiency, medication overdose, abnormal blood coagulation, low platelets, or amyloidosis.
If bruising is unexplained or severe, it must be discussed with a doctor immediately.
