bruise won't go away

I've had a bruise on my lower calf for about 7 months.  It's about the size of a quarter.  I have a history of basal cell, but this looks nothing like it.  I have an appt with the dermatologist in Jan, but I'm just worried about this spot.  Any ideas?

I am having the exact same problem.  Did you ever find out what causes this?

I would love to get an answer to this question.  I slipped in the shower last July and I still have the bruise on my chin.  I too am thinking of seeing a Dermatalogist.
