Indented area on upper right arm

I have an approximate 1x1 1/2" indented area on my upper right arm (front side) which is pink in color. For several weeks there was not any pain, but now I'm experiencing a dull ache in the area below the indented area and it seems slightly swollen. What could be causing this? (I'm a 63 yr. old female and don't have medical problems).

Hi,
This can be a bruise and the cause needs to be determined. If there has been no injury then blood disorder need to be ruled out. Also there can be a possibility of abscess formation causing the swelling and dull ache. Consult your Doctor.
Hope this helps.
