Found bruise on thigh, worried
« on: February 11, 2014, 02:24:23 PM »
This may sound stupid but I am scared I have leukemia.  The reason being is I generally don't bruise easily.   Yesterday when I was changing for work I looked down at my thigh and saw a bruise probably the size of a nickel.  It is still there, and it is the brownish yellow color.  Now, I'm scared more are going to pop up.  I was at work today and out of nowhere I suddenly felt tired.  I think I'm going to get a physical sometime soon.  I should also add that I'll have right leg pain on and off.

I bruise very easily these days too (never used to) I've woken up to monster bruises, usually on my lower leg or thigh. I honestly have no clue how these things appear, most likely though probably bumped it or something :) and just don't recall doing it. I wouldn't worry about it too much :)

You hit yourself without being aware of it. Happens all the time...

I just worry because I see a bruise and automatically think that it has to be something serious.  My thigh does still feel a little sore, what could that be from?

If it is the yellow color it means it is almost cleared. You had the bruise but didn't notice until the yellow color came up. It happens often. The yellow means it is healing. If it were leukemia you would have a harder time healing.
I was on blood thinners for 2 1/2 yrs and I bruised all the time (I didn't know why). It has been 12 yrs since I was on blood thinners and I will find a bruise and wonder where that came from. The stats are that most people do not know where their bruises come from.
