I have a lot of pain in both my knees. Also I had them replaced in Washington state. I now live in Missouri but can't find a doctor that will even look at them. they tell me I have to go back to the dr that replaced them. How do I find a dr. to help me out?
Enlarged (but a lot smaller than the lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>below</span> my clavicle) Hard Painless Moves when I touch it (the lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>below</span> my clavicle doesn't) I'm not sick or anything. No fever, chills, night sweats, loss of appetite etc. I just get headaches, but I have had migraines since I was little so it's normal to me. So I'm not sure if I should be more or less worried! I really just want to find out what this is! CT scan should show it since they are doing my left clavicle and neck.
My husband has a lump on his ribs about three inches long. It is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>just</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>below</span> the left breast.

Hi, I too have upper right quad pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>just</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>below</span> my ribs. I am a male, 46yrs old 6ft and weigh 175 lbs. My pain comes and goes and has for about 6 months. It is not severe pain, but at times is more annoying than anything. It feels like there is something in there pinching me. I went to an internal med MD in July. He ran blood tests that all came back fine. He sent me to have an abdominal ultrasound which showed only "healthy" organs.
I've recently noticed a swelling in my neck 1" across and just below thyroid area. Been to docs who doesn't think it's thyriod as situated too low. She's taken bloods and referred me for a scan.

Although the pain doesn't show up when I poke or touch my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>, I can duplicate the pain when my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> is slightly bent and I press <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>below</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> cap and rub to the painward side while still pressing.

Some of you may be aware of how powerful hydraulic pressure can be.
these lumps seem to be as well. With the exception of the lump near my groin, all have been around for several years. The lump two inches from the inguinal line concerns me because I am not sure if it is lymph node or something else. I might add that all of these lumps seem to be directly below the skin. Are groin lymph nodes only noticeable on the line where the torso meets the leg? Any thoughts on what these might be?

I have a hard time even getting to see the doctor and no one seem's concerned about the pain and swelling but me.
About 3 1/2 years ago, I experienced really bad pain in my left leg, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>just</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>below</span> my knee. After a few days, a lump appear, that was about 5 inches in diameter.

I felt it was there early August 2008 and I'm still stressed about it right now. I even have at least three lymph nodes swollen--one at the back of my ear and one on each where the sideburns are. the lymph nodes came after a very bad cough that took me two weeks to recover from. I am having some back pain (bearable though)--and that's the worst thing I can say I have as of.

Hi folks. I'm casting around wondering why I have "soreness" in the knob just below the waistline--the knob on which you carry babies and laundry baskets. I don't think it's the actual hip joint. For many months, I've had on-and-off "soreness" in that knob (right side), mostly when I first stand up, with every step. A week ago it got significantly worse--after a long busy day on my feet, which followed a two-week period of mostly just sitting.

Hello; for the past few months I have been experiencing a pain in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>, it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>just</span> to the outside of the patella.
