Brief Answer:
You need to see a doctor...

Detailed Answer:

The time duration to resolve a subcutaneous hematoma (bruise) depend on the extent of inital bleeding. Larger bleed take longer time to heal than smaller ones.

However since you report that it hasn't changed for the last 2 months, there are chances that it may not be a bruise. You will need a clinical examination under broad light to confirm the possibility.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
