Lump behind knee cap

Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind knee cap


Avatar n tn So i went to workout one day and after i was done my left knee was bothering me really bad. My mom took me to the doctor and they said it was fluid behind the knee cap but the muscular skeletal specialist said it was an osified bone. So i was started on intense physical therapy. I was on crutches for about a month and a half. The lump is still there and my knee tends to get stiff and sore.
Avatar f tn Although the pain doesn't show up when I poke or touch my knee, I can duplicate the pain when my knee is slightly bent and I press below the knee cap and rub to the painward side while still pressing. I almost thought it was a chipped bone at first, but now (because of the above) I think it is a collection of fluid and the pain is from the fluid trying to migrate to an area of muscle or tissue that doesn't want to separate. Some of you may be aware of how powerful hydraulic pressure can be.
Avatar m tn Tightness or stiffness behind the knee. Swelling behind the knee that may get worse when you stand. Slight pain behind the knee and into the upper calf. You are most likely to feel this when you bend your knee or straighten it all the way. Sometimes the pocket of fluid behind the knee can tear open and drain into the tissues of the lower leg. This can cause swelling and redness in that part of the leg. diagnosis?
Avatar n tn My knee swells when ever I am on it and there is a little thing behind my knee that hurts. My knee 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 Then I found a marble size hard lump on my fore arm half way to the hand. After that I found another one a couple more years later on my upper left leg, just above the knee cap. Most recently (6 months ago)I discoverd a hard lump form right behind my right ear followed by a smaller one forming behind my left ear. I also have been wakeing up with soaked hair line and sweaty body, not too bad but night sweats altogether.
Avatar f tn Do you by chance have a swollen lump just below your knee cap? My 13 year old son has something called Osgood Schlatter Disease this is caused when the growth plate gets injured before you are done growing. It can cause a swelling just below your knee cap of the patellar tendon. It is irritated by activity of any kind, especially twisting or jumping. It can flare up and then go away only to come back again. There is no treatment but rest and ice an usually goes away once you stop growing.
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 n tn I am thinking there are two different (or more) conditions in this thread. There is the electrical shock on the top of the knee and the one behind the knee. Mine is behind the knee on the left side of my left leg. 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 After I had finished reading the other post, I decided that I had held this long enough, when I took the cloth from the lump I noticed that there was a lot of brown puss coming from the lump. I am so glad that I found this site and that you all have had the same problem, being that I don't have any insurance I haven't been to the doctor for this. Now I am wondering how long it will be before the lump is completely gone since the puss has begun. Please help me.

669670 tn?1225648812 My only worry is that I now have a swollen lynphnode on my neck, my jaw between my jawbone and ear, and behind my knee cap. I also have minor chills with no fever. Based on the experiences from my earlier threads was an 8 week test not accurate enough? Do I have go back for more testing? Please help as I can not find an origin to my symptoms. I'm wondering if it's anxiety again.
Avatar n tn You can look at my knee and see the presence of a lump below the knee cap towards the inside of my knee. I do not complain of pain unless it is extreme. I walked around on a torn meniscus in both knees the right one for about a year the left almost 2 years when I told my doc that it was getting bad. I am angry and hurt that the first MD did not listen to me. I told him over and over again that my knee was not hurting on the side where the prosthetic is.
Avatar n tn My recent GP visit suggested that the teraing feeling i''m having (under knee cap, right outside of foot, periodically in heels, 1 spot at a time, for 3 - 6 motnhs each location) - could be from the muscles separating themselves from the bone. She could not provide explanation as to why this would happen or how to possibly stop it from happening so I am in the same unknown as the rest of you but will keep trying to find out what it is.
Avatar n tn oh and plus i have had pain in the same knee if i do certain excercises, or if i sit with my feet hanging off a chair it feels like tugging pain under my knee cap.
Avatar n tn Numbness and burning and itchy. It started out the size of a quarter just above my knee cap during my last pregnancy. Docs said it would go away after I delivered because most likely a nerve was being pressed on...Needless to say it did not go away, and has only been progressivley getting worse. It now starts just above the knee cap and covers almost the whole upper thigh in numbness or anything on the back of my leg.
Avatar f tn This is the jaw joint and inflammation of this joint can cause pain on opening the mouth and tenderness on palpating behind the ear. Check with your doctor to rule out this condition. Lymph nodes which are enlarged greater than one cm are significant. However, you can follow up to see how they are progressing. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Hi All, you seem to have a nice Community here, so I'm jumping in, and as this is my introduction post, it will be a bit long, with my personal and medical background, but I'm mostly interested in those of you that suffer from severe "Brain Fog" Numb Face, Distorted vision. Also... I am creating this post with line breaks...
Avatar n tn Started in the left wrist, went to the left knee, then ankle, and the over to the right knee. Now it's been happening behind my right thigh for about 2 weeks. Very strange.
Avatar n tn Allergic to titanium? I have had three knee replacements, one a cement/antibiotic one. I am in constant pain and my leg has red spots on the aria of the knee replacement and is always wormer then the other leg. Now I have developed a severe allergy in my sinus, with the tubes plug and water on one ear. No one can tell me what I am allergic to. I read many people having the idea of allergies to titanium and I have read that the medical community say it not possible.
Avatar f tn About 3 months ago I noticed some dimpling on my rt breast around the areola. It's not painful, there is no swelling, itching or burning. No lump in or around the area. Just the dimpling. Does anyone know about this and what it could be? I have an appointment scheduled tomorrow with my doctor, but the more I read, the more I couldn't help but do this post. Has anyone else experienced something like this? After reading all types of posts - I'm starting to get a little worried. Anyone?
Avatar n tn I have the same pain from the left testicle that goes to the lower left abdomem(between leg and belly area), if I press my left lower abdominal area and sims my left testicle disconfort to get better for a while(maybe im pumping blood on it dunno lol), also I have a lump on my left testicle. Did a doopler ultrasound and the doc said to me I had a varicocele, but Im afraid about the lump.
Avatar f tn I fell in the dog park onto my knee about 2 weeks ago. My knee was swollen and sore for a day or two, then turned dark dark blues and reds and then the very next started to itch. My doctor friend said, "maybe your knee landed in poison ivy?"... haha. That's pretty much what it looked and felt like. (But, no, the dog park is all regular lawn grass.) The knee was still slightly swollen, like a pocket of fluid above the cap. Not too painful, really, and I could walk on it just fine.
Avatar n tn It started at the side of my schin then right above my knee cap now has moved to my left side. It's all on one side of my body . I'm really worried and don't won't to see Dr cause there are no visible bruises ..any info or help with this ..
Avatar n tn My regular orth Dr. was in the process of relocating his offices to a new space (he had done 2 knee surgeries on me) so I was forced to call any ortho Dr. in the area. The only Dr. who could see me that day was a podiatrist who worked within a large group of ortho Dr's in the area - my primary assured me that a podiatrist was just as good to address the break so I made the appt.
Avatar f tn Yesterday I woke with one on the right side on my right knee cap. It started out about the size of a dime and red, and now today it's the size of a quarter, raised, swollen, bright red, and the itching is almost unbearable. I still sleep with a down comforter, I've slept with down comforters and pillows for years, but can only attribute it to this, so out goes the down comforter now.
Avatar n tn From what I have read on these multiple allergy to titanium posts -- regardless of dental, knee - it is clear most of us are suffering the same symptoms. We all may not be in a clinical study - but hello doctors - we are getting together in this forum.
Avatar m tn But the disturbing truth is that this country lags well behind other advanced nations in delivering timely and effective care. Michael Moore struck a nerve in his new documentary, “Sicko,” when he extolled the virtues of the government-run health care systems in France, England, Canada and even Cuba while deploring the failures of the largely private insurance system in this country. There is no question that Mr. Moore overstated his case by making foreign systems look almost flawless.
Avatar n tn tightness in knees, especially behind knee, joint pains, arthritis, loss of muscle mass, neck pain and tension, muscle weakness, edema in feet and ankles, dry skin. My doctor is starting me on 1/2 dosage strength of Synthroid and building it up in dosage over the next 21 days to finally arrive at .1 MG RX. Then we will retest from there. My life has been a nightmare with this. The main control I had been using was light doses of Ibuprofien.
Avatar n tn A little over 3 months ago, I had (ACDF) Surgery on C5-7 with a titanuim plate and screws as my hardware, as well, as removal of neck spurs and a dislodgement of a pinched nerve behind my spinal cord on C6 ...which yes! caused constant left shoulder to finger numbness, sharpness, soreness, swelling, and tingling . I was doing great with following my Ortopaedic Spinal Surgereon 's orders with using the hard and soft collar, medications, and physical theraphy after 3 weeks post op for 7 weeks.
