They sound that there are probably simple bruises. They might occur on the abdomen from leaning into a counter for example. Often minor skin trauma is not something that we feel significant enough to really record it in our memory. I have often seen bruises that seemed mysterious to the patient as to when they occurred.
i wasn't sure if they wera a sign of a serious problem that I was not aware of when I searched online about random black and blue marks on the abodomen one site said it was a sugn of leukimema
Easy bruising/bleeding can be a sign of leukemia but what you describe does not sound like that level of problem. These are usually very large bruises and multiple and other things such as gum bleeding. In leukemia this can occur as the marrow becomes crowded with too many white cells. The red cells and platelets are then diminished.
Sporadic and small bruises such as what you describe do not usually indicate a medical problem such as that...
