Bruised knee cap treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Bruised knee cap treatment


Avatar m tn i think i have bruised it right on the side of the knee cap where you can push in (soft area). at no point in the injury has there been any bruising that is visible, no swelling, no redness, but some pain. it is ok for walking, but you can still tell that their is pain (normal pain from a pushed bruise). i am still able to run down the stairs and run in general, i think i had bruised right on the joint. i havent been taking any painkillers yet.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, I fell Christmas 2015 running for a train and fell on a large concrete step straight onto my right knee cap. It was cut and badly bruised at the time but over a year later I can't kneel on that area of my knee without it hurting badly I'd say 9/10 pain rating. When I put pressure on it with my fingers it also hurts. The location of the pain is under my knee cap. I've recently started running which mostly just makes the area stiff.
Avatar f tn Hi. . If you had recently fallen and hurt your knee, you might have had a bleeding inside your joint and collection of blood in the joint space along with some fracture. I would advise you to immediately see an orthopedician and get an x-ray or a MRI of the affected joint done. Please do not ignore it.
Avatar f tn Today while running up the stairs I fell and landed on my left knee, it has three small bruises (inner side) about an inch from the knee cap, although the whole area hurts, it's not all bruised... is it something I should worry about?

Avatar m tn I started noticing that after running for 3 to 5 miles, I get bruises on my knee (the left knee has darker / larger bruise than the right knee). The bruises only hurt like a bruise when I press down on them. But they are not particularly painful when I walk or run the next day. I run about twice to 3 times a week. Question: Is this someting that I need to pay more attention to or is there any knee exercises that I can do? Thank you!!
670987 tn?1284498786 Hey everyone, I am pregnant with my third child (about 17 weeks) with this pregnancy it has been one thing after another. First of all I have headaches everyday, now for about the last 5 hours or so, I've had a constant throbbing pain in my knee cap on my left leg. There is a bruised colored knot on the left side but that isn't where the pain is. The pain is around the bottom of the knee cap itself. I've tried a heating pad, ice, tylenol, etc. Not helping.
Avatar f tn About 30 minutes later just below my knee started to throb and swell. I now have a lump about 2 inches below my knee cap and it is swollen and extremely painful. It is warm to touch and slightly red and bruised. It is very painful to bend my knee and it hurts to walk. Could I have torn something or broken something? I’m very worried as I am a very busy wedding photographer. Please help. Thanks.
117078 tn?1200022671 Hi...I fell hard on the sidewalk on my right knee cap and I immediately had swelling and a large amount of fluid on top of the kneecap. I was not able to bend my knee at all. I elevated it for several hours and put ice on it. I tried to get up and my right foot turns dark blue and the veins stick out and start to swell immediately, the swelling i n the knee returns immediately even though it goes down a little bit with elevation and I still can not bend it.
Avatar f tn Ok so on dec. 11th i slipped on the ice and my knee hit the ground and it bruised for a couple weeks and about a week ago i kneeled on something and it hurt my knee and i checked t and there is a part that is indented in and feels like there is a huge crack in it.....
Avatar n tn My boyfriend was playing football a few week ago and we was hit hard during play and complained of knee pains. He went to the doctor and they said he had a bruised acl and there was nothing that could really be done. Is that really true is there nothing that can be done, and if so how long does it take to heal, and will his leg ever be the same so he can be athletically active again?
Avatar f tn I have a hard (boney) bruised lump on the upper right part of my knee cap. It hurts to touch it and put pressure on it when I am walking. It is also swelled (kind of feels like there is fluid in it). I also feel grinding at the top of my knee when I move it and there it pops on the left side. Almost two weeks ago I fell and skinned the same knee pretty badly. The part that got skinned is healing nicely but I don't know what this lump is. Any ideas on what this could be?
Avatar n tn Hello I'm 17 years old and any help is greatly appreciated I was at this party about 7 months ago and i had too much to drink and fell on my knee Since I have been unable to apply pressure to my left knee while bending - without feeling pain - Bending my knee isn't a problem as long as i don't put my weight on it - The pain i'm feeling is just underneath the knee cap.
1278937 tn?1271257811 This is not as surprising as my left knee. It is still bruised on the kneecap next to and around the scrape. It is a little sore to lift at times around the top frame of the knee cap as well. Has anyone experienced a slow recovery - and long-time bruise like this? This knee was more swollen and sore after the fall - so just taking longer??
Avatar f tn I dont remember bumping into anything but i have 5 small purple dots on my knee cap, i did some research and wonder if it has anything to do with my kidneys. I got a UTI over a week ago and i still get the urge to urinate but not as badly. I was taking antibiotics but I havent been taking them consistantly and I only have one kidney, there is no pain when i touch it and i only just noticed it today. Im wondering if this is related to my UTI or if something else is wrong? https://gyazo.
Avatar m tn Last wk I was playing basketball and when I came down from jumping I had a real sharp pain in my knee and could not continue. Around the top of my knee cap is tender and hurts and when I put pressure on my knee getting out the car or anything I get sharp tack like pains under my knee cap and sometimes on the side of my knee and it aches a little, I have really slight swelling but I am able to walk. What do you think it is and what should I do?

Avatar f tn m sitting and move it a certain way i cannot make them go straight without pain and then a pop. Also when I ice skate or roller blade the medial side of my left knee cap hurts and the lateral side of my right one, what does this mean if anything?
Avatar f tn Today I was walking inside from my lani and my left foot was wet, as I stepped in with that foot it started sliding forward (I was bascially going to do the splits) and I lost my balance and fell on the inside side of my right knee cap with my entire body weight! It hurt but I was able to get up and walk around on it. As the went on the pain got worse and worse and now anytime I walk on it or bend it, it pops. The poping is uncofortable and will not stop.
Avatar f tn The next day the whole knee cap area was bruised (lump had gone down). This happened Friday afternoon and I still have bruise today (Tuesday morning). I do bruise easily and have them on my legs most of the time, but this time I didn’t hit it at all and I have never had it swell this way. I was just curious if this is related to Ehler-Danlos, maybe medication (started 750mg Nabumeton 2 weeks ago & it’s been helping), or something else.
Avatar m tn I'm 16 and for the past year I've had knee issues. I work at a library and shelve books so there's a lot of crouching and knee sitting. Last year I had gotten a huge bruise on my knee cap that covered nearly my entire cap. My doctor said that it was fine and that I just needed to do more physical activity. I started dance and I feel like it's just aggravating my knees more. I just noticed today that I hve a small shiner on my right knee.
Avatar f tn ve been limping ever since the knee looks deformed there was a massive purple bruise which has now gone down. There is still swelling on the knee cap and the leg feels numb yet painful and tingly to the toes. It's my right leg so it's my main leg and I don't know what to do. I can move my leg but its really painful. if i touch the knee is tender and if i move my fingers on it the knee feels like it's jarring. Nothing seems like a comfortable position.
Avatar f tn s above the knee cap. Right now I just went for a 5 mile walk with my knee brace on and the front underneath my knee cap is very sore and it hurts to keep my knee bent. I'm a 27 year old female who has never had any knee problems before. I'm a geologist and so I really need my knees to be healthy. Unfortunately my health plan is horrible and really can't afford x-rays and MRI's if it ends up being nothing serious. Thanks!
Avatar f tn I can move them around with my finger. It is right on my knee cap. I have had runners knee and had a few falls on my knee in my life. It does not hurt that bad unless I stand or walk for a while. Im assuming its loose bodies/cartilage but im not sure if you can have those by the surface of your skin above the kneecap? What do you think this is and should I see a doctor for treatment? I hope this makes sense!
Avatar n tn I started rubbing my knee and noticed a couple small bumps under the skin and on top of my knee cap, it almost feels like a bead under my skin, and it hurt very bad to touch it. It is on my left leg and floats around the top of my knee cap when I touch it what do i do?
