Avatar f tn It is VERY painful, but not discolored at all. However, the veins behind that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span> are all OF a sudden getting really dark.The <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> is hard to the touch. I also have a small BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP in my right buttocks. It has been there for about 2 mBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONths, this BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe is smaller than the BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON my thing and not painful, but my doctor has referred me to see a surgeBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON about the BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMPs. but it is GOING to be about another mBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONth before I even meet with the surgeBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON. I am VERY worried...
Avatar n tn 5 days ago, 2 OF them started flaring up, getting BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LARGEr and painful. Yesterday I woke up and have a painful <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> under my left armpit. I know I have a raging infectiBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON, but have to wait till MBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONday to get an appointment with the breast surgeBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON. Because I've had these so frequently, I'm not freaking out, just wanted to add my story. I hope everyBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe who has been suffering from this miserable cBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONditiBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON is getting good medical care and taking care OF themselves at home as well.
Avatar n tn For the past few days i've had pain that comes and goes behind my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span> area. It will sometimes travel into the BACK OF my thigh or in my CALF. I think i've had it in the past, but it would BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONly last a few minutes, but this time, it's been GOING BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON 4 days. It almost feels like a vein pain or a tendBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON pain. I went to the doctor yesterday, and they did an ultrasound to check for blood clots and they didn't find any.
Avatar n tn and so I was GOING to get BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON here and ask about my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span> problem...and saw this! anyways...I too from time to time get a <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON the left BACK OF my head....about in line with my ear...and it almost feels like a lyph node that gets sore. I have had this for quite some time...and it comes and goes. I have read that it is more then likely a node...and when the nodes get BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LARGEr/ could mean that its an indicator OF something like an infectiBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON ( sinus ) or other.
Avatar f tn If that were the case it would be painful to KNEEl BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span>, and that would be about the BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONly symptom. Now a better questiBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON is how to treat it? I dBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON't know :) I'll play around with mine and let you know what I figure out.
Avatar n tn About 3 yrs ago I did have problem with what felt like a painful tightness behind the same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span>, which became quite uncomfortable when GOING DOWN BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON my haunches. It now seems to have moved to the ouside OF the KNEE as described. The pain is not unbearable yet but is becoming more uncomfortable with time. I played a huge amount OF squash when I was younger but not for the past 12 years. May have something to do with the problem. Would be most grateful for your input.
Avatar n tn My KNEE swells when ever I am BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON it and there is a little thing behind my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span> that hurts. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span> feels like it has a elastic band around it and my toes tingle. When I told the Dr. he said it takes time. Well my job is a standing job for 9hrs. a shift and this is just killing me. Did you get better and what did you take for the pain.
Avatar n tn I also have a not painful golf ball sized <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> below my sternum and slightly to the right side. I found it during the middle OF a weight loss biggest loser style competitiBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON that ended up winning. At the point I found it I think I had lost about 30 lbs in about 4 weeks. 2 more mBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONths have passed and I have been to two doctors and BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe physical therapist. No BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe seems cBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONcerned about it but no BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe did an xray or anything other than push BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON it either.
Avatar f tn My sister in law died from breast cancer in 2003 and I know her initial <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> was quite big when it first presented..I suppose I've been a little obsessed by every <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> and bump in my own breasts since then..I did have a BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMPectomy in my right breast 3 years ago, but that was a benign BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP, very small too, fortunately. Thanks for your reassurances regarding the mammogram..
Avatar n tn I am thinking there are two different (or more) cBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONditiBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONs in this thread. There is the electrical shock BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON the top OF the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span> and the BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe behind the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span>. Mine is behind the KNEE BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON the left side OF my left leg. I have no KNEE injuries or any other kind OF KNEE problems. I am not BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON any type OF medicatiBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONs nor have never been pregnant. I have had a lower BACK injury, spells OF sciatica and minor RLS.
Avatar m tn I have a hard <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> behind my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span>. It is the size OF a dime and its painful. i get a lot OF cramps especially at night. like muscle spasms and i had BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe the night before the bump appeared. the next day I noticed i had a BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP that was hurting me and then two days later it turned into a huge bruise about half OF my palm. The bump is still there and i dBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONt know if its just a bruise or its something i should go check out. I would like to know what it could possibly be.
Avatar f tn Do you by chance have a swollen <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> just below your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span> cap? My 13 year old sBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON has something called Osgood Schlatter Disease this is caused when the growth plate gets injured before you are dBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe growing. It can cause a swelling just below your KNEE cap OF the patellar tendBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON. It is irritated by activity OF any kind, especially twisting or jumping. It can flare up and then go away BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONly to come BACK again. There is no treatment but rest and ice an usually goes away BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONce you stop growing.
Avatar f tn I am unable to KNEEl as it feels like a massive burst OF pain behind the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span> into my CALF muscle as if i have severly sprained it. When standing, if i transfer any weight BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONto my right leg, i get pain from the BACK OF the KNEE right DOWN my CALF. It is a cBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONstant pain when any weight is bearing BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON it but if i KNEEl or bend the leg with weight BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON it, the pain is like a muscle pull and extremely painful. When walking there is no pain at all.
Avatar n tn it hurt in that spot and the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> got bigger and bigger. Now it is about the size OF my hand. it is very painful to lay BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON. It is like I'm laying BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON a ball and I also can't drink anymore w/out getting sick for a couple days. I have gBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe to the doc and got alot OF tests and blood work dBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe and they said it was nothing but inflamed fatty tissue.
Avatar n tn I have a huge cyst BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON my inner right thigh that is the size OF a ping-pBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONg ball. It is a sOFt <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON top OF a hard <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> and is soooooo painful that it is hard to walk. Currently, the area is red, with the top part purple. It is enlBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONgated and rubs my other thigh when I walk. So far, I have been soaking in an EspBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON salt bath and/or holding a hot part water, part epsome salt compress to it. It is very painful.
Avatar m tn I found a BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON my left testicle, which didn't hurt at first, but lately it has become painful. OF course, I am not 100% certain that the <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> is related to the pain, this is just something I have assumed. It also feels like the pain cBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONtinues DOWN my left leg to my KNEE (but again, I'm just assuming the two pains are related). I did go to see the doctor, but during the (very short) examinatiBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON she did, she couldn't feel any BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP.
Avatar f tn I notice I have a enBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LARGEd <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> behind my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span>. My doctor doesn't seem to know how to diagnose it. I have difficulty standing lBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONg in the last mBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONth or so due to this and ALSO my veins behind the KNEE are enBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LARGEd at the times the BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP is BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LARGEr causing a lot OF pain BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON the whole BACK OF leg. I dBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON't know who to see= a orthopedist or a venous specialist or both?
Avatar f tn I now have no insurance and have already had an ultrasound dBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe OF the main arteries in my leg. But this was before the numbness. In the crook behind my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span> there is a painful BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP. It has been there for two or three days, but the ultrasound cBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONfirmed that there wasnt any blood clots. I'm sure this has to be unrelated to the numbness in my hand and fingers isnt it? I need to know what to do because I am having to do odd jobs that are all cBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONstructiBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON related.
Avatar f tn Not BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONly are the glands in my neck really sore but also now under my jaw, behind my head, under arms and groin. The pain can extend into my ears like an ear ache. I also have a come again, go again headache behind the right eye. Sometimes my eyes are itchy, sometimes my skin is itchy. I have joint pain that moves around, muscle pain and this wierd bBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe pain.

It is extremely painful and I cannot walk right, and limp, and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span> and behind the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span>, but pretty much all OF the leg. Dull, deep, cBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONstant pain. Could this be BBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe metastasis?

Avatar n tn But in the evening I felt some pain behind my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span> (lateral) and I think there is a <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span>. Same behind the right KNEE. Not sure if it's cBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONnected, but there seems to be something blue under the skin. Now I am pretty terrified that this might be swollen lymph nodes. I started to check my whole body and there might be also some swellings under my armpits though nothing very obvious. My questiBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONs: 1.
Avatar m tn Today, a week later, I have the pain in every joint, my entire jaw, have a big <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>BACK</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP</span> behind my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span>, which is the worst joint pain OF them all... I have been having sudden and severe abdominal pain, some diarrhea, shoulder pain, Mussle pain in my BACK, as well as chest mussle pain, pain BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON my heels, etc. I have had a few migranes, nausea, and feelings OF being disoriented, or choppy or slurred speech at times.. I described it to a friend as almost like I am coming out OF annestetic.
293157 tn?1285877039 When I woke up the next day, I found that my right leg was so painful I couldn't stand BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ON it. Turned out I had a blood clot behind the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>KNEE</span>. So here's my theory, and take it with a BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LARGE BACKground-color: #dae8f4'>LUMP OF salt. I know that rapid heartrate can cause blood clots. I also know that I've tested positive for lupus antibody, which means that I might have anti-phospholipase syndrome. This causes unexpected clotting. I went through several mBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONths OF warfarin, and now the clot is gBACKground-color: #dae8f4'>ONe.
