Question:

i would like to know if i should be very concern about the brusies i have on my lower leg?

Answer:

Bruising is not uncommon, especially if associated with some type of trauma. If the bruising is unrelated to any type of bumping or compression and this has not been a problem for you in the past, you may want to follow-up with your local physician for further evaluation.
