Thank you for the information,

Sudden onset of bruise with pain in the leg should be check in hospital without delay.

DVT should be checked asap.

Other possibility of such bruise can be injury.

Sometimes bruise can develop without any significant underlying cause, it that case it is not concerning.

But you should go to ER.

Tylenol can be taken while proceeding to ER.

I hope this information helps.
