Thanks for writing to us.

I have gone through the details submitted. I also was able to view the picture on WWW.WWWW.WW
The details and pictures are suggestive of a hematological disorder (disorder of blood and blood components), either bleeding disorder or malignant disorder. The possibility is more of a bleeding disorder like thrombocytopenic purpura which occurs due to decreased platelet count.

Getting your blood counts tested (complete hemogram with platelet count) along with coagulation will help us ruling out bleeding disorders.

Yes, the details symptoms suggest further evaluation and it is worth consulting your physician / hematologist

Hope this answers your question. For any further query, do write to us

Take care and Regards,

Dr Sadiq

Hi. I am 41 years old, healthy and exercise regularly. I had an area on my left inner calf just below the knee that was itchy. The itch went away but there is a hard knot that is getting larger and bruising that is spreading as the day goes went from 1/2 inch to 2 in diameter today alone. It s dark blue/black and the center is turning red/purple. The leg aches in that area and the knot is painful to the touch. I have a 24 year history of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura. Is this knot and bruise anything to be concerned about? I suffered no trauma to the area that I can recall. I m concerned about blood clots. Thank you.
