What Does Tenderness Behind The Thighs Indicate?

Hi, My husband developed bruising and tenderness on the back of his thigh. Then it had swollen up 22 percent bigger than the other one, the bruising goes from his groin and ends behind his new. His foot is very swollen also, bluish and discoloration on the foot. Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
