Hi London,
       The bruise may be a good sign.  You can get an infection in the breast due to some trauma whether you recall it or not.  Just make an appointment with a GYN for an annual which we all need to do regardless of our age.  Chances are you have nothing to worry about but let a doctor make that call.  MV
