Avatar f tn I am a 50 year old woman, I found a large lump that popped up suddenly on my right leg, just above and to the right of my knee. It is not painful. It is not soft like a lipoma. I am scheduled for an MRI but not a biopsy. According to all of the information that I have read about this, it is likely a malignancy. It is currently the size of a cherry tomato and when I am in a squatting position where the muscle is engaged, it protrudes.
Avatar m tn After that I was unable to flex my right knee due to pain but I could manage to walk. Upon x ray and MRI scan it was diagnosed as avulsion fracture of posterior cruciate ligament and the fraction bed was 0.1mm. I was applied with POP bandage over the right leg (no surgery done) and advised bed rest. After the treatment period stepping up and down on stair case was difficult for me and slowly felt crepitating noise from the same knee.
Avatar n tn (She had both hip replacement in 2010 previously)Can she have MR and tomography? She started having severe hip(both) aches after her right knee surgery. Especially when she moves or walks, she says her both bottoms(where she sits), sometimes hips are hurting so much. Does she need to have MRI or tomography and can she use MRI or tomography with her replacements?
Avatar n tn 2 years of increasing pain in right leg (not knee, ankle, or hip); excrutiationg pain "only" when in an a horizontal position (most noticeable in bed at at night), walking upwards (like a staircase), or stationary in a vehicle for long periods of time (more than a half hour). When I am upright, working (accountant), and even when exercising, I rarely feel any pain at all. Current medical to date: MRI (lumbar) and bone scan; all negative results.
Avatar n tn I have two questions can you please explain in laymen terms. 1. This is what was in the nuclear Medicene doctors finding report, "There is photopenic defect involving the metallic right toe knee arthroplasty hardware". I took this as meaning there is an issue with the hardware on my knee replacement which has cause scare tissue. What else are they trying to say?
Avatar f tn Hi...just a suggestion...u can request a copy of the MRI on disk...and a copy of the report....u will get it b4 u see the dr that rx'd it. Not that u can read it, but if u r sent to a specialist u will have everything u need!!
Avatar f tn I get up and I walk like old lady in pain between inner thighs down to my calves. Its right near the knee cap. I go to the gym I'm limited to what I do. I can't do jumps. (hurt). I recently gain weight. Wondering if thats. Or it comes down to been 46yrs. I recently got a scan on my one knee but have arthisits (wear and tear). Do I need to go and get MRI? Its a pain from driving then hopping out of the car walking across the road with stiffness..then slowly comes good for awhile..
Avatar n tn He has had x-rays, a bone scan, and we are waiting for an MRI result. He shows one sign of hip displasia, the crease behind his right knee is higher then the left, but the x-ray and bone scan shows there is none. he has no bone fractures and the doctor is bafled by his limp. THe only reason the MRI is being done is because I insisted on it. Is there anyone else out there with the same problem or any other testing ideas to help find out what is wrong with my child?
Avatar m tn In the last year I have had 5 excruciating attacks in my right knee, yet I've never injured my knee in any way. The episodes seem to come for no apparent reason and typically last for 3 days. The pain is so intense that I cannot work or even stand for those 3 days. In fact, I roll around moaning and screaming when the episode is at its peak. It feels like electric shocks which hit every 2-3 seconds during the 3-day attack.
Avatar f tn I’m an 18 y/o climbing Instructor and have suffered with right knee pain for a couple of years now. Recently it got bad to the point where it was unstable and painful without bearing weight. I went to my GP who is a sports team medic (so knew his stuff) and he ordered an MRI as he was concerned about the cartilage. I had the scan last week and I’ve just got the report which just states ‘There is not much on your scan except slight wear to medial meniscus but no tear’.
2115734 tn?1334546847 For X number of months (where X can be 3, or 4, or 5 or maybe even 6), I have no physical pain in the RIGHT knee. When OA (osteoarthritis) physical pain starts under the kneecap of the RIGHT knee, I do quad sets for Y number of consecutive days (where Y can be 4, or 5, or 6 or 7 consecutive days) and the physical pain ends again for X number of months. I'd like to swim but know that with no external support around the RIGHT knee there's physical pain while swimming.
Avatar n tn What type of pain is this that hits the right knee abruptly even like lightning so swift, and travels from the knee straight through the thigh nerve and/or tissues, shooting straight to the joint of the thigh and groins that lasts at least one to two minutes. Sometime the pain is so severe even after it has left I can still feel the pressure it leaves behind.
Avatar f tn This could be due to a disc that is bulging or any number of things. I think your physio did the right thing in ordering an MRI etc so that you'll know for sure. I would in the mean time, however, avoid prolonged standing activities and practice positions where your back is in a more "open" posture, for example, lying on your back with your knees and hips bent and hugging your knees towards your chest. This should take some of the pressure off the nerves in your back.
Avatar f tn Back at the beginning of december i injured my knee. I had been about to kneel down when my leg gave out and i landed on my knee with it bent in a very awkward way. I had swelling and great amounts of pain and dull ache and after seeing a doctor in A&E was booked for an mri scan and put into a lockable brace which i wore for around 6 weeks as he was sure i'd suffered mcl injury. The scan showed no cartilage damage and no real mcl damage which was suspected.
Avatar n tn ) had resolved somewhat and I was weight bearing w/a limp, but NOW it has moved to the RIGHT side of the left knee. If I lie down and try to bend the knee, drawing it up to my body it feels very strange, as if there is cotton all around the inside of the knee. It feels swollen, too. Can ANYONE tell me what's going on? The 2nd physician wants to do arthroscopic, BUT I can't take the time off work, and I have a bad history of not waking up from anesthesia...
Avatar f tn It will require more advanced imaging than an x-ray to diagnosis your knee pain. An MRI will provide a better detailed picture of the structure of your knee. I encourage you to request one. In my opinion you may also benefit from an Orthopedic Consult. Be assertive. I hope you'll let us know how you are doing. We'll look forward to hearing from you soon.
Avatar f tn Are there any other tests that might show if there is a problem with the knee cap. Can an MRI be done with TKR, or a Ct Scan or bone scan? Thank you for any advice.
Avatar f tn i have seen several and they say there is noting they can do. i have to go to a pine clininc. they have done all test such as ct mri bone scan ultrasound, and nothing shows up. i dont know what do. im at a dead end. im looking at six months at the paine clinc. i would rather have surgry thean be away from my family for that long. im wondering if they missed something an all those test.
Avatar m tn my name is wishyiar// mri scan for left knee says /bony contusion at medial condyle due to associated degenerative changes anterior joint effusion is noted grade 2 posterior horn degenerative changes at medial meniscus noted with normal meniscus apart from anterior horn meniscal syst.
Avatar m tn I can lie on my left side as long as I have a pillow between my legs, and even then I need to move my legs every few seconds/minutes (depending on the severity of the pain). I have had CT scan of back, MRI of back, xrays of hip, knee, foot, ultrasound of groin.. all came back normal. This started when I was masturbating and felt a dull pain in my right groin.
