Common Questions and Answers about Knee problems lump


Avatar n tn I'm just wondering, I have had a lump on just on the side of my right knee. Its been about 2 years I have had it. I thought it might have been a pimple and anytime I tried to pop it or squeeze it, it felt like a needle going up my leg. Now its about 2-3x the size it was 2 years ago, with no pain. Its shiny looking and reddish, dusky color.

Avatar n tn Once again Dr. Knee has given you exactly the right advice. Dr. Knee is accumulating many coupons for this good advice and will soon be able to construct a new patio deck when all these couppons are redeemed at Home Depot. The overwhelming odds are that this is a benign growth. A nothingburger. But I can understand your fear. The next step would be a needle biopsy. Sometimes these lumps are best left alone. Some kinds of lumps can be simply crushed by the physician and they will absorb.
Avatar n tn I am sorry to hear about your medical problems. If there is a painful lump under the incision it can be an abscess or a clot. Also, since you have leg pain, you should get an ultrasound of the lump and dopplar studies of the leg blood vessels to rule out clots. Hope this helps. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn had knee surgery to fix tear 35% cartilage removed now have lump above knee and knee keeps locking they think it might be hematoma but had physio for bout i month did nothing so they think its fluid leaking from knee anyone had these problems?
Avatar f tn I notice I have a enlarged lump behind my knee. My doctor doesn't seem to know how to diagnose it. I have difficulty standing long in the last month or so due to this and ALSO my veins behind the knee are enlarged at the times the lump is larger causing a lot of pain on the whole back of leg. I don't know who to see= a orthopedist or a venous specialist or both?
Avatar n tn It hurt for a few days and then no problems followed. Now I have developed a soft watery type lump on the front of the knee cap where I struck it. There is no discomfort, pain, or use restriction whatever. If pressure is applied for a few minutes the lump essentially disappears, but returns again after a few minutes. The 'lump' is about 1.5-inches across and no more than 3/8ths of an inch in 'height.' Water? Cure? Forget about it? I suspect it will go away by itself but am uncertain.
Avatar f tn The symptom of popping or snapping in the knee can be a sign of a few different problems. It can be accompanied by a fracture, cyst or tendon inflammation if not properly managed. However, it is important that you see an orthopaedic surgeon for evaluation. If several diseases are suspected, additional diagnostic modalities may be requested. For other concerns, consult your physician. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn I am an active 57 yr old woman who dislocated her knee at 17 and subsequently had two surgeries on that knee due to cartilage problems. After avoid almost all sports, I took up tennis 10 years ago without any knee problems. Two years ago when I tore a tibial tendon and was told there nothing that could be done for me, I got custom orthodics, started working with a trainer to increase muscular leg strength and lost 30 lbs.
Avatar f tn I've also been having pes tendinitis and seriously tight hamstrings (biceps femoris) that feels as if there is an adhesion or deep bruise near the back of the knee (inferior portion of the biceps femoris). If I palpate it, it is painful and there is a lump that feels like a muscle knot.
Avatar f tn I have had no problems at all. Until 2 days ago I noticed that my knee (operated knee) has been cracking every step I take, when the knee extends. But it will only do so for "X" amount of minutes, And then it wil stop cracking. But it will come and go, it is very annoying and frustrating due to the fact that I have not have any problems up until this point. I have been doing squats and dead lifts at least once a week with about 135 lbs. with NO PAIN in the knee what so ever.
Avatar f tn I am a 42 year old female, 6 months pregnant, no prior R knee problems. A week and a half ago, I was walking over a dog gate, tripped and fell, with all my weight on my right knee. There was some bruising alot of swelling, severe pain. The pain is only a little better, hurts to bend, cannot kneel down. Have sharp stabbing pains in it and burning. Difficult to sleep at night. My OB said that my kneecap is bruised, but it will be 2 weeks in a few more days since I fell.
Avatar f tn pain in leg starting in the back in the tail bone.down leg to severe pain behind knee. pinky is numb to slightyly numb. also feels like a lump is under my foot . no mater how much i feel it cant feel anything. pain is severe in knee when bent in sitting or driving position. after sitting for a while hard to get up and start walking.
Avatar m tn Although the pain was very bad, she recovered well, having no problems with the knee replacement. Yesterday, completely out of the blue, she had a sudden severe pain in her knee whenever she bent it, which went on intensely for about 20 minutes. She couldn't bend the knee at all in that time without being in agony, but it felt okay as long as she kept the knee straight.
Avatar n tn If any one of these structures are injured or damaged, then the person lands up in knee problems. As you have posted that everything in there was torn apart as informed by your surgeon, it seems that you have not only injured menisci but other ligaments also. With this history, arthritis would not be first entity to be considered. The badly traumatized knee has to be rehabilitated and this requires you to start physiotherapy.
Avatar n tn So my guesses are globus or allergies. I have had other neurological problems before (once on my knee from a bike crash, and also from child birth) Can one be prone to neurological problems?
Avatar n tn I do think I feel it when I run hard if I recall (I've been avoiding running though because of knee problems, so I can't test that theory thoroughly) So I've just thought that must be what it is until recently. I keep getting it after I eat! It seems to me it could be an allergy, but when I look at allergy symptoms they say I would have trouble breathing. I do not. I just have a painful lump in my throat, often coupled with nausea and diarrhea.
Avatar n tn In January I choked on some food and from that moment on I have had continued problems with daily heartburn (pain in chest and between shoulder blades at times), burning in the back of my throat, lump in throat, and generally feeling like I had something small (the size of a piece of rice) stuck in my throat. An xray was taken of my throat (normal) and a barium swallow was done. The diagnosis was esophagitis and I was told to take OTC Prilosec daily.
Avatar f tn I was thinking maybe my arthritis was more widespread than I thought, I've had problems with my knee and one elbow too but for a longer time..but I did wonder whether some other kind of illness was causing the more widespread pain you've got me thinking :( Thank you so much for your suggestions.
Avatar n tn I recently felt what feels like a lump under my sternum, it feels like its connected to my sternum and only way i even relized he was there was because i was feeling around my stomach area one day. It really doesnt bother me but lately ive been noticing it more and more. I dunno if its all in my head just because i found it. Im just wondering if I should go see a doctor, ive read of the xiphoid process and im not sure if thats what it is.
Avatar n tn I am 20 years old and I have a lump on the right side of my vagina. It is near my pubic bone, near the hairline. You can't see it but you can feel it when you apply pressure and move in circular motion. It is about the size of a marble and does cause some pain, but nothing drastic. There is also some swelling around it. But I am very worried and tried researching on it. I really need some advice right now. Please, help me.
Avatar m tn after my vasectomy. A painful lump formed. I believe these two problems are connected. Any time I engage in physical activity (running, gym, sex), BOTH areas become very painful. It has ruined my life - I can't do anything physical. In February 2014, I had surgery to remove the lump in my scrotum. They thought it was a granuloma. Now, almost 5 months after the surgery, I have an even larger lump in my scrotum - still painful.
Avatar n tn I have no knee injuries or any other kind of knee problems. I am not on any type of medications nor have never been pregnant. I have had a lower back injury, spells of sciatica and minor RLS.
Avatar n tn But if it gets back to being almost every day, I can't imagine having to continue to deal with that for the rest of my life. As long as the bone is in place, I have no problems. No swallowing problems, no pain, nothing. I just never know when it's going to pop. I do a lot of public speaking and presentations. My greatest fear is that it will happen in front of an audience. The pain is so sudden and intense that I immediatley burst into tears.
Avatar n tn I am 34 and have an extremely painful large protruding lump under my armpit. I have never had anything like this every before. It is growing rapidly and now changing to a pinkish tone. I went to a doctor and he said it is an infected gland and put me on some antibiotics. He said it should work. It isn't. I work at a job where I am irritating it constanly. It seems to grow more then. Should I get it drained or wait for it to burst on its own? I am worried about the pain of the draining.
Avatar m tn There are some natural pain reliefs to prevent knee pain without depending on the medications with side effects. 1. If you are facing knee problems regularly than use braces (if you are involved in regular activities which involves movement) 2. Exercises are good for knee problems but always warm up yourself or do some stretching before doing any exercises. 3. Prefer the supplements glucosamine and chondroitin which can reduce the inflammation due to osteoarthritis in the joints. 4.
Avatar n tn If the pain comes on bending the knee as in walking step or running downhill or down a flight of stairs, then it could be due to Patellofemoral syndrome or runners knee. This happens due to mal-alignment of the knee cap on bending the knee (and hence any imaging study has to be taken with the knee bent), injury to the knee (you may have sustained it in past), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint. All these aspects will have to be investigated by your doctor.
Avatar f tn I also have osteoathritis, especially left knee and had a knee repair 18 months ago, few wee nodules now on finger joints so OA getting slightly worse. Seeing doc again on 6th December, re scan, still waiting for appointment to come thru. Was going to have this sorted thru NHS but think may go private as starting to freak me out a bit and have no confidence in doc. I've made an apointment with another doctor for my return visit.
Avatar n tn For the past few days i've had pain that comes and goes behind my knee 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 only last a few minutes, but this time, it's been going on 4 days. It almost feels like a vein pain or a tendon pain. I went to the doctor yesterday, and they did an ultrasound to check for blood clots and they didn't find any.
