Question: I have discoloration on my back near my waist on the left side. Its about 4 inches wide. Looks like a bruise but I do not remember any trauma that would cause it. Also, in touching it there is a small hard spot within the discolored area. It was first noticed on Sunday by someone else when I was in the shower at the gym shower. No pain at that time, but feel some now when I lean to the side.
