unexplained bruises

For the past week and a half- 2 weeks we've been noticing unexplained bruises on our 17 month old. Most were on her shins, forehead and chin which could be explained with falling but the past few days we've noticed bruises on her back and today found two more on her belly. They are really bad. Anyone else ever been in this situation? Almost scared to take her to the dr with all these bruises for fear of being accused of beating her or something :( of course i've been googling it and i see leukemia being a reason for unexplained bruises so now i'm really scared! Anyways, just want to know if this has ever happened to anyone elses little one.

Get your daughter in to see the doctor asap, they will know the difference between bruising because of abuse and bruising because of some health condition regardless you need to get her in. If it is leukemia yes that's one if the first signs and she will have to undergo kemo and get the proper treatment she critically needs, if by chance its abuse wouldn't you want to know the truth? My little cousin had leukemia and she was only 3 months old when they started treatment and it was a very long year but was fortunate to get the help she needed in time. Take care if your little girl she is most important.
