It is strange how it just appeared – the purple seems to get darker and then fade but never goes away with no pattern - I now believe it is in the exact same spot on my other leg. Again it is below the skin and there's no physical complaints – I just happened to notice it I feel like it is very very gradually getting a little more widespread. Started off a little smaller than the Silverdollar and now it is a little bigger over the last 3 to 4 months. Again I have no other symptoms it doesn't bother me at all physically - I am just concerned because I don't know what it is and a little afraid if it is something very scary. Any theories are welcome.
