What is a "bruise"?

A bruise is a mark on the skin caused by injury, where blood vessels underneath the skin break and leak blood into the surrounding tissue. Typically, bruises appear as discolored patches ranging from blue and purple to yellow or green as they heal. They are often tender to the touch but usually fade away over time as the body reabsorbs the leaked blood and repairs the damaged tissue.
