Bruising and Signs of Cancer
I know this isn`t really your area but I was hoping you could tell me if a sore ( ex.bruise) that does not heal from an injury ( ex. fractured bones) is a symptom/sighn of cancer , if so what type of cancer? Keeping in mind the bruise is in an area like the foot or hand
You are correct, this is not my area. I suggest you contact your physician and discuss this. It could be something as simple as chronic bruising. At any rate, it is important that if you have concerns, you direct your questions to the appropriate professional to get the best answer.
