I found a random yellow bruise near my belly button

Patient: I found a random yellow bruise near my belly button and feeling lack of breathDoes this mean i have leukimia

 

 

Symptoms: Random yellow bruise
Lack of breath

 

 

Doctor: HiVery good question.Your mentioning the duration of the symptoms of random yellow bruise marks and lack of breat h and mentioning any other symptoms would have helped me.Anyways, the yellow bruise can appear due to sudden loss of weight as such called as striae.Since you have a doubt, it is better to get the blood tested in this regards.Leukemia is not that easily picked up, good that you thought about it.Hope this helps you.
