Common Questions and Answers about Lump just below knee


Avatar f tn I had both my knees replaced in 1999 & 2001. On my left knee just below the the prostisis is a lump. I am wondering if it is the bone or if it could be the prostetic. 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?
Avatar n tn Enlarged (but a lot smaller than the lump below my clavicle) Hard Painless Moves when I touch it (the lump below 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.
Avatar n tn My husband has a lump on his ribs about three inches long. It is just below the left breast. It is tender to the touch and when he stretches his left arm up it causes him pain. He has a doctor appointment on Thursday. I just hate that every time you find something like that you have to be scared to death of what it is. Hope it's nothing and can then we can breathe again.
Avatar f tn About 3 weeks ago I noticed soreness under my knee. I also have a lump about the size of a marble. It is below my knee, like on my upper chin. I have not injured it, nor does it look bruised or swollen. Just a lump that hurts to touch and move my leg. It is fixed and does not move nor is it soft There is no discoloration. What could this be?
Avatar f tn I thought it would go away on it's one. But the pain is still there. It's located right below my left knee cap. It feels numb otherwise just kills when I put any pressure on it. Any ideas on what it might be or what I should do?
Avatar m tn On wed pm noticed a firm lump acrooan are of about1 inch just below the knee. This enlarged over night such that it protuded about 1/2 inch. No pain; not tender and felt like bone. Activity no bother unless I lunge or put sudden body wt pressure when again discomfort. I suspect I've caused some minor tssue damage and the swelling is fluid/blood but no bruisng as yet, Puzzled that it took 4 days before the lump appeared. Saw a nurse (couldn't get to see a doctor).
Avatar f tn I have been having left knee pain. I have mild osteoarthritis in this knee. Below the knee cap towards the inside I have been getting a lump that gets bigger with activity. I also get burning pain when it gets bigger. Now it is like a thick line about a inch or so long starting in he same spot and going down. What is this?
Avatar n tn Hi, I too have upper right quad pain just below 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.
Avatar f tn 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. Any ideas? It's hard, moves when I swallow. Apart from swelling, health is really good, no recent infections. I'm a 52 post-menopausal woman.
Avatar f tn Yesterday I was photographing a wedding and I kneeled down and as soon as my knee hit the ground I had a severe pain just below my knee. It felt like I was kneeling right on my bone and something was stabbing it. I got up and seemed okay. 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.
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 f tn I have a hard lump on the lateral side of my knee and bruising around knee and it band. I cannot bend knee and feal pain all the time, when sitting, lying or walking. When i press lump there is irritability and pain. It hurts to straighten knee. I had an x-ray that shows a minor lateral patella tracking but my knee cap does not hurt. I have had this for a year, what can I do to fix this and go back to sport?
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn I have also been in severe pain with swelling in my left knee 4 months after arthroscopic surgery. I also have a large lump at the site were the scope entered my knee, when I ask the doctor that did the surgery about he said it should go away before I die. I thought this was a horrible thing to say because I was really worried about the lump. I have a hard time even getting to see the doctor and no one seem's concerned about the pain and swelling but me.
3649884 tn?1347847342 About 3 1/2 years ago, I experienced really bad pain in my left leg, just below my knee. After a few days, a lump appear, that was about 5 inches in diameter. After several months and tests, an Orthopedic Surgeon looked at my MRI and said that it looked like a lipoma (possibly pushing on my nerves, that is what is causing me the pain), and I needed a plastic surgeon to remove it.
Avatar n tn I have this lump just below my sternum--it's boney and has a hard mass that goes with it about the size of a chestnut. 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.
Avatar n tn I just found a lump two weeks ago. I can't get into my Dr. for 3 more weeks. Reading these has me scared to death.
152264 tn?1280358257 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.
Avatar n tn KNEE 2 VIEWS LT INDICATION: Painful lump, anteromedial aspect of the knee. COMPARISON: None. FINDINGS An abnormal mass is seen arising from the anterior aspect of the proximal tibia medially. The larger component measuring up to 3.2 cm in craniocaudal x up to 2.4 cm AP arises from the anterior aspect of the metaphysis adjacent to the growth plate. There is a smaller component which appears to be involving the epiphysis centrally, measuring up to about 2 cm. This may be contiguous.
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 Hello; for the past few months I have been experiencing a pain in my knee, it is just to the outside of the patella. It is a very sharp pain, like an electrical shock. It happens totally at random. It can happen when I am walking, sitting, sleeping, etc. When the pain is not occurring, my knee feels completely normal. When it happens, it usually happens every few seconds or minutes, then stops for several hours. I am not aware of any injury or unusual stress to that area.
Avatar n tn The strange thing is that it started in my left knee which is now fine and my right leg has new vericose veins and a lump below my knee cap. I went to the dr. he took xrays and he said it could be 1 of 3 things: hematoma, sist, or arthritis. Just wondering if there is any other concerns i should have since it began in one leg and has moved to the other.

Avatar f tn About 2 weeks ago I fell on my knee and impacted the lateral aspect of my knee just below the patella. I have considerable swelling a pain, bruising down my shin and just below my ankle. I don't have insurance right now and I have only had access to a GP who diagnosed bursitis, put me on Naproxen 500mg b.i.d. and told me to keep a compression wrap on my knee. The lump has gone down some but is still hard and tender to the touch.
Avatar f tn There were times over the years that I felt more than just a little disconnected from my body. As this lump goes down, that disconnected feeling is getting to be less and less. A few months back I reported I had a die off of microvermin in my knees, made my skin look older when they left, but the knees got a lot more flexible. Something died around the area of my left shoulder blade last week.
Avatar m tn My throat is very tight and I feel a lump sensation, especially when swallowing, right below the adam's apple. It always feels like there is mucus in my throat and am constantly trying not to clear it (which is tough). BACKGROUND INFO/HOW IT HAPPENED Almost 4 weeks ago, after singing for a rehearsal, my throat felt a bit tight. The next morning I could tell that something was wrong as my voice seemed weaker and my throat seemed constricted or tight.
Avatar n tn I had tried to clean the infected area, which did puss a little. It has now sunken far below the surface. The lump causes only minor pain. Does anyone have any ideas on what this might be? Thanks!
