This picture is of a bruise that has been on the fleshy part of my lower shin (leg) for about 6 weeks.
It started because I bumped my leg on something. Over then next couple weeks it got bigger and bigger. It is now the size of a 50 cent piece. And slightly raised. And hurts!


The same thing happened about 6 Months ago . I still have a tiny discoloration from that on the other leg. It has been 6 months and I still can see where it was. It hurt just up until about a month ago. So that means it was a raised bruise for 4 months!:eek:

What could be causing this?:confused:
And I was planning on starting a walking regiment this month and I'm wondering if it will affect it in any way.... bad OR good. ;)

Thanks... TR
