Lately I have been getting very large bruises on my legs & thighs. I know how some happened but not others. The bruise I got just yesterday is huge, like the size of the old dollar coins. Cause?

In brief: Easy bruising

Low platelet count due to ITP or other reasons can do it.
See your doctor to get some blood test done.
