Small bruise with some small broken vessels extending out. Is this a issue a emergency?

Hi This small bruise the size of a pea with some small broken vessels extending out of it with showed up on the inside of my leg a week ago, but I did not bump or injure that spot. I have also been experiencing dizziness for the last 8- 10 days. I have a doctors appointment on Monday. Is this a issue a emergency? Or should I wait till my appointment?

It appears what you are describing is a spider naevi on your skin. It may be a sign to rheumatologic or autoimmune diseases. If you drink alcohol often it may be seen. Better go to the Doctor, get your blood workup and confirm.

welcome to healthcaremagic

it is better not to delay appointment

your bruises and dizziness may be feature of some serious illness

clinical examination and investigations needed to rule out any serious problem
if it is solitary bruise like spot it is less likely to have any serious problem ,even then it is better to consult doctor

Thanks for the help. I also forgot to add when I made the first post that at the same time that the other symptoms started I noticed this lump under the skin on the backside of my thigh. Within a few hours of me noticing it it opened up into a small soar red around the outside like bug bite with no bite. Like the rest its been a week and its not seeming to heal.
