My 57-year-old husband suddenly has large streak-like bruises on the inside of his upper thigh near his groin . He has sustained no particular injury to that area. The bruise area extends from the top inner thight to half way to his knee . The other leg side has a large circular purple bruise that got bigger from one day to the next. He has no known health conditions.
