Has anyone ever had this....on the inside of my leg above the knee I have had what started out looking like a bruise, but it wasn't painful. It never went away and ended up turning a bit more reddish-brown and has been there for about 2 months or more. I was feeling it with my finger and a blood vessel is very prominent going right through the middle of it. About 2 inches above this there is a little bump along the vessel and then I can't feel it anymore above that.
There is no pain, but my blood vessels are very prominent in that leg below this, especially in the calf. I have a ton of symptoms that do not correspond to this area, but there is no pain or discomfort in this leg.
It sounds like varicose veins. You can treat it with hemorrhoid cream, and it may shrink. Make sure to get the cream though and not the ointment. The ointment smells awful. Remind me of your age and other issues. Sometimes varicose veins can be caused by other medical problems
