    Can a bruise get bigger by itself?

    So hypothetic, if you were say to hurt your thumb, playing a very fun game of volleyball on Friday...

    Would it be normal if the bruise was still getting bigger, say on Tuesday?

    It doesn't hurt... It's just gotten bigger.. It goes from about half way up my thumb down to the beginning of my wrist...

    Fluid and blood can spread under the skin further than the initially damaged capillaries.

    Yup, they can - I am a very easy bruiser (pale skin which shows them more in first place) and they spread like crazy it seems for me. You should see me during the high point of mountain biking season - I look like I enjoy hitting my legs with baseball bats...rowrr

    However, if this is not normal for you, I would get it checked out - that kind of bruising almost sounds like a dislocation/fracture (even if faint and you don't otherwise feel it can be hairline fracture) - black bruises in my experience tend to mean something may be broken.

    It may also be a sign of some vitamin/mineral deficiencies, and I believe even one of the symptoms of diabetes is easy/more persistent bruising.

    Sometimes it takes a few days for the full extent of the bruising to be noticeable. I once fell very hard while ice skating. The bruise started off small but within a couple of days it covered a wide area and was a multitude of shades.

    Yep, the deeper the bruise, the longer the time it will take to show up all the way.

    The color changes are fun, too.

    Yup, i fell down a storm drain once in my teens. Landed my rear right on the corner of a block of concrete. when I got home and looked at it it was red & had had been bleading. day two I could barely walk, it was purple, and the size of a grape fruit. By day three it was my entire cheek, black, and there was no way I was getting up off my stomach.
