Bruise Behind my Knee

I have been having some pain behind my knee the past couple of days and looked at it this morning and noticed what looks like a yellow bruise. I do not remember hitting my leg. Does anyone know what could cause a yellow bruise on the back of my knee? Thanks.

Re: Bruise Behind my Knee

bondi,

Thanks for responding. Obviously no one else was ever going to.

I have been taking a low dose aspirin every night for about a year now because of my migraines and I have noticed that I brusie a lot easier than I ever have in the past few months. The bruise behind my knee did go away afer a few days and I have not noticed any new bruises lately.

Dear Chrislynn

If you read my recent post yesterday, you will find that I have skin lession at my feet which similar with bruises,it was diagnosed as erythema nodosum. You can do research by yourself in internet about it.

This is very common and benign skin disorder,which could be caused by many condition, including aspirin and tiredness.

Mostly woman gets this problem, however man is also possible. (1 man compare 5 woman).

This lession is very similar with bruise but usually is caused by benign disorder. However, I think you should see your doctor for making sure.

Wish you healthy.
