Bruise on the leg, dark purple with thick red line. Cause and remedy?

Hi Dr. um, i m a 17 year old female, and i ve noticed a bruise on my left leg. once i observed it closely, it does not seem like a ordinary bruise; it s dark purple and it seems like it has a some-what thick red line. This has not happened to me before. My mother died of stomach cancer , however, i m not sure if that will affect the situation. What is on my leg and how could i get rid of it?

Dermatologist 's  Response
Your skin condition might be Hypertrophic Lichen planus, An inflammatory skin disease, or others.
I am sure it has no relation with the pathetic incidence of your mother.
But i like to suggest you to visit a dermatologist because
You need a skin biopsy for histopathology, a surgical procedure, to confirm your diagnosis.
I hope that this confirmation will give you some mental relief.
I am looking forward to your report.
With regards.

welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
have you got any injury in that site or it happened its own?
do some blood tests like CT,BT,aPTT,PT.TLC,DC AND Hb%
its no way related to the stomach cancer in your age
if these tests found abnormal then consult your doctor soon. if report is normal then not to worry
take care
