Thanks for the query.
Normally such types of bruises occur due to injury.
In the absence of any history of injury,there are following main reasons for it.
1... If a person is on some medications like aspirin or anti coagulants.
2...if a person is suffering from some bleeding disorder.
3...some times in old age a person may get bruising because of thinning of skin.
If this is a single episode then ypu may simply wait and watch.
If however you are having repeated episodes of bruising,then you should consult a doctor and get relevant investigations for bleeding disorder done.

I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
