Posted on Mon, 30 May 2016
Question: I have a ring shaped bruise on my stomac to the right just below and close to the belly button, it is about 5 cm in diameter.
The circle is reddish purple and it suddenly appaired, it has normal skin color in the middle .
I notice this a couple of days ago,to day it is bigger, about 7 cm in diameter.
I have not injured myself and it does not hurt.
Now I wonder what this could be and would be very thankful for any help to find out what this could be.

Brief Answer:
Better to do a coagulation profile test to rule out any problems.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. It is better to do a coagulation profile test to rule out any problems with coagulation. You could have injured unknowingly or injured by tight clothing. Applying thrombophob ointment will be helpful for this.
Are you taking any medications. ?
Are you having any other health problems. ?

Let me know if anything not clear.
I am happy to help you.
Thanks.
