Large purple bruise on thigh, white center, tender to touch. Causes and treatment?

yes, I woke up with a large purple bruise on my thigh. The center is whitish and it is tender to touch. I dont remember bumping my leg before bed. I do remember waking up thinking I had soreness and needed to foam roll it the next day. I forgot about it when I woke up and then noticed the bruise while driving in the a.m. Any idea what this could be caused by?
