Bruise on right shoulder, back, no shoulder or back injury. Causes and treatment?

Hi all, yesterday i noticed a linear bruise on my right shoulder . This morning i noticed one on my back, the same diameter and width as the first. Both do not hurt, but are completely unexplained as i have not hit my shoulder or my back within a week. I have found answers similar to my bruises on these forums but none that have identical bruises. They almost looks like a cross between a bruise and a dull birthmark . any answer helps!

thanks for your question.

if your are experiencing spontaneous bruising then you should have your yiur clotting and platelets checked on a blood tests.

as we get older the superficial vessels in the skin become more fragile and one can get spontaneous bruising with minimal trauma.

I hope I've answered your question.

best wishes
