Noticed bruises on my left leg, may have been from moving some planter pots and emptying them. I notice a small bruise about the size of a nickel on the left side of my abdomen

Hi and thanks for query.

Easy bruising can have many causes, the most important is bleeding disorder specially if accompanied by gum or nose bleeds. Other reasons can be thinning of ski with age and use of blood thinners. I would suggest you should get your complete blood picture and coagulation profile to rule out any bleeding disorder. Mean while you can apply ice packs to the area and elevate your limb while asleep and can take tylenol if pain is there.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Please do leave a positive rating.

Wish you good health
