Avatar m tn i have a hard lump on the side of my right knee,it sorta becomes invisible when i move my leg back 2wards my butt,sometimes it hurts n other times it seems to av changed in size also..
Avatar f tn For as long as I can remember, my left knee has had a lump on one side, very bony and hard. It's not soft or movable at all and doesn't change size. For the longest time it felt like just part of my knee (like that bony part on the outer side of the knee, but bigger) but for a few years it has been really sensitive. For example if I accidentally bumped it, it would hurt pretty bad. Pressing my fingers down on it doesn't reveal any softness but it still hurts like I'm pressing on a bruise.
Avatar f tn I am a 45 year old female and I have a fairly good sized hard bony lump below my knee cap. I have had it for 3 months and it is now starting to become tender when i touch it. I haven't had any injuries. Any ideas of what it could be?
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 I have been out of work since the 7th of this month. I noticed a soft lump on my knee just over a week ago. No falls or accidents have happened. Only things that i can relate was a tight fit on a bus given my height which could have bothered my knee. I had a medial meniscus repair around 2009. Then 3 years ago i received a gun shot wound to my distal femur (not sure if that matters ). About 2 days ago the soft lump got a little firm. Still no pain unless i kneel on it.
Avatar n tn My husband has a hard painful lump on the side of his knee. It has gotten larger and it is bothering him quite a bit. He is 36 years old. Any suggestions what it might be? It is not soft like and abcess it is really hard and you can see it sticking out.
Avatar n tn I have a large soft painless lump that suddenly appeared above my knee what could it be?
Avatar n tn Hi. It will be hard to tell exactly whether the lump on your outer thigh near the knee is benign or malignant. There are so many benign tumors of soft tissue origin. Examples of benign condition are lipoma and fibroma. Likewise, there are also many malignant tumors of soft tissue origin. In order to differentiate the two, there may be a need to do a biopsy. I agree with your decision to seek consult with your doctor. Take care.
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 n tn I read there's a specific type of cyst for the shin-calf area , not sure exactly where yours is Popliteal Cysts A popliteal cyst, also called a Baker's cyst, is a soft, often painless bump that develops on the back of the knee. A cyst is usually nothing more than a bag of fluid. These cysts occur most often when the knee is damaged due to arthritis, gout, injury, or inflammation in the lining of the knee joint.
Avatar n tn It may have existed in some capacity for some time, but I just didn’t pay much notice of it. The feel or consistency is similar to a lump on my lower back; it is neither really soft nor hard, it feels like a small rubbery lump and you can push around with your fingers. I also have one on the side of left leg, about 10 inches up from the knee. This one is smaller, but harder. In addition, I also have two on my right leg, about six inches up from my knee.
Avatar n tn Then I noticed that the leg had an indent and a rather larger wouldnt say lump, its more of a swollen mass above knee about 3" and goes across the whole front of the leg maybe about 3". It feels rubbery but does not move, it moves with the skin. Dermatologist thinks its Lipomas? I thought lipomas were smaller and taller ball like tumors, this is more like a mass. Should I be worried. And why would I get two at the same time?
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 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 Last week my husband discovered a large, irregular, fleshy lump about 4 inches above my knee on my outer thigh. It is not painful, and I have no idea how long it has been there. I saw a PA for examination this morning, and she sent me directly to have an ultrasound done. She also suggested that I have a needle aspiration done at the same time, but I declined. I wanted to know the ultrasound results before deciding on any kind of biopsy, etc.
Avatar n tn Hi! A lump above the knee cap or patella as it is called can be pre-patellar bursitis. A bursa is a small fluid filled sac around most mobile joints. This is lined by synovial membrane which secretes a slimy substance to lubricate these joints so that there is no friction during movement. The other possibility is that it is a cyst, a lipoma, or a soft tissue tumor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examination. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar n tn I was out to dinner last night with some friends, and noticed that my left knee was sore. I noticed a soft lump under my skin, on my top of my knee cap. It is about the size of a gum ball, maybe a little bigger. About three weeks ago, I fell on cement onto my knee and got all cut up. It healed just fine, but I am wondering if that has something to do with my lump. Should I go see a doctor?
Avatar n tn Large lump that developed overnight on my pompoo's left front leg above the knee. Could this be some type of insect bite?
Avatar n tn We are waiting three months to do a retake of TSH, T4 and T3. We also found a lump on son's leg below the right knee a little over a week ago. It didn't go down so much as divided into two lumps and has pretty much stayed that way for a week. The lumps are soft and do not move. They're about quarter sized. Othropedic doc wants to wait a month and see what happens. I'm wondering: (1) What does it mean to have an elarged thyroid, low TSH and normal T4?
Avatar n tn Hello Doctor, 8 yo female Siberian Husky Great overall health Last night I found a rather sizable (golf ball) lump on the interior of my dog's right hind leg (by her knee). The lump is symmetrical and is not movable... it kind of feels like part of her muscle but is so large that I am concerned. I bathed her aprox. 2 weeks ago and did not notice it and she has not had any trauma (to my knowledge) to that region of her leg. Any advice would be most appreciated.
Avatar f tn I get the same in the right knee. If I kneel full weight on the knee it feels as if i've knelt on a sharp flint. Really thought I'd done just that the first time it happened. Pain is intense as long as I keep weight on it. Localised below and to right of patella. I can't trigger the pain by running or by moving the joint in any way although the area is slightly tender if I press it hard. There is no lump or indication of any foreign body under the skin.
Avatar m tn Then it all cleared up, but later i found a painless lump on my shin, which didn't hurt unless you pressed it hard. It was from that point on, i started having random pains, sometimes long and dull, and sometimes short and sharp. It doesn't really have a usual area, but it tends to happen more in my knee, middle shin and the upper thigh. Sometimes when i walk, my right knee clicks. Rarely, when i lie down for a while (this happened once or twice) my leg just jumps.
Avatar n tn Although they most often occur on the wrist, they also frequently develop on the foot—usually on the top, but elsewhere as well. Ganglion cysts vary in size, may get smaller and larger over time and may even disappear, only to possibly return later. " Source: Cysts or lumps on the body may lie on a nerve and cause a burning or tingling sensation. Some bumps may be infected or may be tender due to recent pressure or injury.
Avatar n tn Wow your symptoms sound exactly like mine, i had to do a double take to make sure that it wasnt my post. I have a lump on the bottom rib on the left side under my breast. I had it checked out at docs and it feels like bone matter and doesnt move at all it is firmly stuck. I only noticed it since i had my first child. It seems like it could be scar tissue from when i cracked the rib years ago when i had a really bad cough (believe it or not!!).
Avatar n tn She woke up yesterday with a Swollen bump under her knee cap that is the size of 1/2 her knee. The top of it has a spot on it that looks like she scrapped or burned it like a rug burn. Says when she presses on it, it burns/hurts. Hurts to bend but only because of the skin being pulled. Obviously I told her to go to the dr tomorrow to get checked out which she is. She has been iceing it.

250155 tn?1485299539 My dd had soft lumps on the back of her neck. They were swollen lymph nodes and were completely harmless.
