My hand has bruising under the skin. It started an inch above my pinky finger and formed a line straight across my hand. Every couple of days, I have noticed it continues to spread. It is now covering my hand from an inch above my fingers all the way to my knuckles. I fell off my bike a month ago but I dont even have pain in my hand. Im wondering if the fall started some kind of bleeding under the skin. Could you tell me what this might be?

  • Could definately be suncutaneous bleeding and might indicate a more severe problem if it's worsening. You might want to get a CT scan of your hand if not your chest and head depending on how bad the bike accident was.
