Muscle lump above knee

Common Questions and Answers about Muscle lump above knee


Avatar f tn The tear was about 2 inches above my right knee, rear of thigh. Immediately after the injury, I had the sensation of "sitting on a lump". Lumpy area is high in rear right thigh, going into groin area. I have been sitting on this "mass" for all this time. 3 mri's, 1 ct scan, and 2 xrays. They can't see a thing, but I still have involuntary muscle spasms of the hamsting...
Avatar m tn I was doing knees to feet jumps and pretty soon afterwards I noticed a soreness on the back of my leg right above the knee. When I inspected it I felt a lump. I tried doing some research and thought maybe it was a hematoma or something, but I'm not sure. There is discoloration where the lump is. The lump is still there and has been there for a couple weeks now. It is not that sore just feels hard and it does not bother me when I am moving my leg around.
Avatar n tn Then, after filing your nails down to the quick, dig into your stomach to massage out those muscle knots. Search for muscle knots and massage them out the same way you would massage a friend’s tight shoulders: hunting for the ‘good’ painful muscle, and then working on that. Try using the thumb of one hand and use the other hand to help apply pressure. Try massaging in 5-10 minute bursts a few times a day. If not immediately, you should see results within a few days.
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 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.
Avatar n tn It does move around, feels a bit like a fatty lump, I've also noticed another one just above it too. I've booked an appointment with my GP, the next available one is June 10th (3 half weeks away)!!! Obviously I wanted a female doctor. I'm constantly worrying. I haven't told anyone, my sister is due a baby anyday so I don't want to worry my mum or anyone. I feel sick everyday cos I'm worrying so much, I've convinced myself it's cancer. As soon as I find out what it is I will let you all know.
Avatar n tn I have an 7cm x 2cm area below the quad muscle, 10cm above the knee that is worrying me. It is not a defined lump, but more of a soft ridge. It is not really harder or softer than the surrounding area, but when I run my hand over it I can feel it. When my leg is straight I can't feel it, and it is also not really noticeable when my quad muscles are flexed. It completely blends into the surrounding area - I can't feel any edges.
Avatar n tn I was very surprised and nervous to discover a tender lump the size of a chestnut, just below my sternum and above my stomach. All kinds of scenarios went racing through my head! But after reading the multitude of posts on this website, I feel much more at ease that I'm experiencing "xiphoid process" Thank you to all of you have posted, and helping those who just got here.
Avatar f tn Hi. Since April I have had pain above my left breast. It's not constantly there, but it comes and goes. Sometimes it feels like a burning pain, other times it feels like a cramp. I've also felt it in my armpit at times and it will also creep up over my shoulder. Although I VERY RARELY feel it on the right side, it DOES happen once in awhile. But for the most part it's been my left side.
Avatar n tn 90% of people have sciatic nerve running around butt muscles, the remaining 10% have it running through the piriformus muscle. SO, when your butt muscle is tight, then it pinches sciatica, hence the inconsistent knee shooting nerve pain., is a free web site; save your recipes, vacation plans, and share this research with others by letting them add to and review your information... check it out for the knee pain. Good luck!!! will post after the 29th with mri results......
Avatar f tn He fit me for a temporary mouth guard which is very awkward to sleep so I only tried it for 2 nights. Today I saw a new ENT. She said the lump was my jaw joint. She thought it sounded like a muscle or joint issue I was experiencing and suggested a different type of mouth guard. I also had a salivary gland biopsy (most painful thing ever) to rule out Sjogren's. One parotid duct did not seem to be producing any saliva. So I guess I am at the wait and see point.
Avatar f tn I decided to go to a private orphapedic who said i had a trigger point in my lower back felt as a small lump just above my hip. He has now sent me for xrays and mri scan of my pelvis hip and lower back. He thinks it may possibly be osteotis pubis. I have got tenderness and slight atinging in my left pubic bone where the leg meets the groin. I have tenderness round my bottom, my lower back is sore and my hip on the outside is tender to touch. I am so fed up and depressed with it all.
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 n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar f tn Still feeling fine but throat starting to feel a bit constricted. Lump is about 1 inch above collar bone, just offset to left of middle of throat. It's where I'd expect my thyroid to be. Now noticeable without having to feel for it. I'm from Scotland and have a really horrible doctor, no people skills at all. Throat exam cursory at best, discussion of symptoms minimal. Only symptoms I think I may have and not sure these are relevant.
Avatar n tn For the past week or so my left shoulder has hurt and I had muscle spasms, the lump hurts severely! I can't sleep at night, it hurts mostly in the evening and in the morning. During the daytime I can handle it. Also, the pain radiates to my back and burns! Its like a stabbing, burning, pain. Now the lump is the size of a quarter. It hurts when I touch it, I tried applying heat....bad choice; hurts worse. The area over the lump is warm to the touch. I tried cold help.
798555 tn?1292791151 Malic acid capsules remove lactic acid in muscle fiber, which is the cause of the pain. To get things rolling after all of the above is completed you need to manually force the lactic acid out of the effected muscle tissue - to heal the damage. Trigger piont therapy, trigger point release, myofacial release and the best of all - Active Release Technique works for this. A limited amount of new age Chiropractors offer this, books are available as well as videos on u-tube.
Avatar n tn I have had chronic rhomboid muscle pain on the right side for 10 years, and have seen numerous MD's(MRI with no significant problem found), Chiropractors (Adjustments & pressure point message), Physical Therapists (waste of money) and a Neurologist that is currently performing acupuncture. I self medicate with Ibuprofen, and sleep on an ice pack every night.
Avatar n tn I get this extremely bad knot in my left shoulder blade muscle area....between the blade and my spinal chord area... when i stuff envelopes or cook or fish.. it gets excruciatingly bad.. i know its just one of the muscles.. but why is it ONLY the LEFT side all the time and how can i minimize the pain because it gets to where i cant hold my head up sometimes.
Avatar n tn I had one removed surgically and while it did not come back, I have a scar and still get them in areas above and below the site. The doctor had to go into my muscle to clean out the infected tissue and walking was difficult for a week or better. My advice on surgery, don't let one get so bad that it must be surgically removed. I went to the Dr yesterday and she said a lot of times the infection can come from your nostrils and the humidity.
Avatar m tn I had my initial thyroidectomy due to papillary thyroid cancer on 01/19/2010 when I was 28, half my thyroid was cancerous with a big lump sticking out of my neck but I felt fine/normal. Since then I have been plagued with continuous pain, fatigue, and muscle tension (especially my back where the ribs connect to the spine, the tension and pain make it hard to breath)... my endocrine specialist is if anything special ed and definitely not what I would call a specialist in any since of the word.
Avatar f tn I have a question regarding the back of the leg where the crease is when you bend your leg. I noticed that in that area right above the crease it looks like a lump but it's on both sides of my legs equally. Does anyone know what this is? Could this be cancer? It is not hard but more like soft fat or tissue. It is not only on one leg but on both sides. It kind of looks like it is defined where if you look further up my thighs its looks like it is connected to some kind of muscle.

Avatar m tn would it be easier to see a lump if i tightened my muscle, were laying on my back, or standing up straight?
Avatar n tn The lump itself can be seen as well as felt - the lump is located about 2-3 inches above the knee. Every now and then I get a quick pain sensation just right at the lump - other times, it feels like it is pressing along a nerve - I cannot lift my leg.

1417063 tn?1282111264 My knee immediately swelled up and I couldn't walk on it so my mother got washing soda in a pillow case and wrapped it around the knee overnight, in the morning the washing soda was a hard lump and my knee had this powdery stuff on the skin, but the knee was markedly smaller, after three days of this the doctors were able to operate, I thought it was my mother being weird - but it worked and several friends have now used the system on their swollen joints.
