Sore shoulder, purple bruise

About 30 days ago my shoulder was sore so I massaged it. A few days later I noticed a purple bruise about the size of my thumb . A week later the bruise turned into a brown ring smooth and normal colored in the middle. A week later there are two more small rings beneath it. Now the first ring has gotten bigger and is beginning to look tree shaped. My shoulder is occasionally sore.
