Bruise on left arm, yellow discolouration spreading around it. Family history of thrombosis. Cause of worry?

I had a bruise apear on my left arm at first it was a small bruise with purple colouration now its still purple but more yellow colouration is spreading around the bruise. I dont have any pain on affected area but 3 days ago had shortness of breath. Should I be concerned as I have thrombosis running in my family. Is thrombosis genetic? I am a 27 year old male about 1.8 meters tall.

I am sorry that you suffered the bruit. I am glad that you do not have any pain on the affected area. To me, it seems like healing and nothing to be concerned about.

Yes, a few of the thrombotic conditions are genetically inherited.

It should resolve spontaneously in a few days.

Wish you good health.
