Question: I have a lump and bruised area on my inner upper left thigh that I noticed after a long bicycle ride
Answered by Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta 2 hours later
Thanks for the query.
It is very common to get bruised after cycling.
As you age your blood vessels,capillaries and skin becomes very fragile and on top of it if there is constant friction,bruising is bound to happen.
When some large amounts of blood is leaked,it can cause small local lump.
There is nothing to worry.
Just take rest and apply local ice.
It should be all right soon.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck

Yesterday I dropped a cranberry juice bottle that was frozen, like ice you know for a cooler, on my right foot. the bruise swelled up right away and was like a lump on my foot. It was probably 1.5 inches round and about .3 inch high. then about 12 hrs later it had spread out maybe 2.5 in across and it is now a purplish/bluish color with a light pink circle in the middle right where the bottle fell. It kind of burns when something rubs against it. The bruise flattened when it spread out. Could this be broken?
