Darker spot under the skin


A couple of days ago I noticed a small ( ~5mm diameter) dark bluish/greenish spot under the skin on my shoulder. It's quite faint and looks very much like a small subcutaneous bleeding... I wouldn't be worried, were it not for the fact that it's not connected with an injury of any kind and also, when I pass my finger over it, there is an ever so slight hint of a bump. It doesn't [I]look[/I] harmful (it wasn't there one week ago), but better safe than sorry I guess. I've heard that some forms of fatty tissue deposits due to clogged pores begin that way due to tiny capillares bursting, but I'm not too knowlegeable about biology and would like someone else's opinion. I don't wan't to go to the doctor just to look like a fool afterwards, in case it's something that's obviously nothing to worry about... What do you fine people think?

Much thanks in advance
