Vascular Surgery

Blood pockets that burst



Hello! Can you please answer a question, I bruise very easily. Twice I have had (for no reason) a pocket of blood swell on the outside of the skin. It feels like a bite or itching spot and when you look at it, it is a swollen spot about the size of a nickle or like a small balloon sticking up out of the skin and then it will burst (not outside of the skin but inside) Is this something serious or not.


It doesn't sound serious, but it would be helpful to have your primary care physician look at it to be sure. Good luck!
