I am 18 and have been ill all this week and ive noticed in the mirror today my legs have darkened slightly and my veins in my thighs are really dark and showing more than usual, Also i have a few bruises that have come from nowhere... my legs feel weak achy and i find it difficult and weird to walk, im quite worried because my mum told me unknown bruising could be a sign of cancer and she wants me to go to the doctors but i dont know if im over reacting?? any thoughts please???

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Unknown bruising can be due to many other causes . Cancer is overrated. Get evaluated, let them run some labs and sort it out.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
