Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Has she sustained any trauma to that area. If yes, the bruising and swelling could be due to bleeding under the skin due to problems in blood clotting. Other possibilities could be chest wall swellings. It would be best to get a complete work up after getting her examined by the Paediatrician to rule out the same and get appropriate management.
