      Yes, my husband had a subq in his chest that bled and he experienced extensive bruising on his chest that lasted for a few weeks.  He had done some lifting, which must have caused the tumor to bleed.  Melanoma specialists (3) that saw it said that tumors are very vascular and do bleed.  They had no other explanation or nothing to add to that….not the profound answer that I had expected!  I hope this will help in some small way.
