Mayo Clinic Medical Edge: Bruising easily can be normal but sometimes signals an underlying problem,


 DEAR MAYO CLINIC: Lately, I seem to bruise very easily. Is this something I should see my doctor about or be concerned with? I am 54 and in excellent health. ANSWER: Bruising easily can be normal in some people and becomes more common as we age. But bruising easily may also signal an underlying medical problem. You probably should have this problem evaluated by your primary care doctor, especially if the bruising developed recently or has become more frequent or more severe…-- William Nichols, M.D., Hematology, Mayo Clinic.
