Patient : I was fiddling with a lump on my hand and then looked down to realise, after feeling some discomfort, that it was actually blue and looked a little like a bruise. After sleeping it off the blue colour has spread. I was just wondering if it was just a broken blood vessel or a bruise I was unaware of or even something completely different.
