I have a shadow like bruise across my ribcage underneath my arm on the right, what could have caused this?


Posted by kdub

I have not banged myself at all, but 4 weeks ago I felt like I had 'tweaked' my ribs on the right hand side, I thought maybe it was a pulled muscle or trapped nerve, but then this shadow like bruise appeared across the area. It is about 6 inches long and 3 inches in depth. It looks like a shadow on my skin, not really like a bruise. I sometimes have a little pain when breathing in, when I have rested the bruise seems to fade, but when I start working the bruise gets darker and my right arm also aches.
