Bruise near bikini area. Hard, thick under the surface. Not sexually active. Causes and treatment?

I have a small purple bruise looking circle surrounded by a larger red circle high on my leg next to my bikini area. It hurts and when felt it is hard and thick under the surface and even larger than the coloration indicates on the surface. It appeared within the last week, like it was not there one day and there the next. I am a 43 year old caucasian female. Not sexually active.
