Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

I read carefully your query and evaluated the picture you sent.

It seems to be just a bruising ,a small hematoma.It might be caused from a minor injury that you might not remember or it might be a spontaneous hematoma.It doesn't indicate any specific problem that would require any medical assistance.
It is not of concern.It will change color gradually and go away completely in 1-2 weeks.

Hope it helps.
Let me know if you have any question.

Take care.
