Hello Charlie
The bruising may be due to the injury which you have not noticed, and causing soft tissue injury or bleeding inside and resulting in dark bruise.
Keep the leg elevated.
Wear elastic bandage at the site.
Do alternate hot and cold fermentation.
Take analgesic and anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce bruise.
Take rest as much as you can for proper healing.
If the darkness of the bruise increases or you feel any fever than immediately consult your doctor for that. Hope you got your answer.
Best Wishes
