Swollen lump above knee

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen lump above knee


Avatar n tn Shortly after doing this he noticed that the thicker area above the knee seemed to be swollen. I didn't think it looked swollen at the time. The next day he noticed a lump about the size of a small lemon, but he didn't tell me till last night. Could this have developed because he overdid it or should we be concerned and go to the doctor now. He has some degree of varicose veins (mostly bulging veins above his ankles) but it is not painful to him just unsightly.
Avatar n tn A few days ago I noticed a sore, reddish swollen lump on my left inner thigh, right along my bikini line. It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair?
Avatar f tn I do not experience any grinding, locking, catching or giving way of the knee. There are no positions that make my knee uncomfortable other then putting my weight on it while kneeling. It feels totally normal otherwise. The pain is as if I knelt on a sharp rock or tack or even as if my bone is splintered. It began a couple of weeks ago while kneeling. I have not tried anything to help the pain other then not kneeling on it. Never had surgery. No hip pain or ankle pain.
Avatar f tn A week or so after my throat quit hurting I started getting swollen lymph nodes on my right side at the base of my neck-shoulder area which sometimes can be seen and can always be felt. It is significantly larger than my left side. I also developed a lump between my ear and jaw. (same side) It is not something that is easily felt from the outside by others. However, I can feel it and move it around. It hurts to do so though.
Avatar n tn I'm hoping you can help. I have had a swollen and tender axillary node in my left armpit for upwards of 5 months now. I went to my family pediatrician (I'm 15, but I am using my mother's screen name)and he said that he had no idea but to refer me to an OBGYN. He said to give it a month or two to see if it would go away. Well, obviously it hasn't. My obgyn said for me to go and have an ultrasound done, she couldn't really pinpoint the cause of it.
Avatar n tn If even after treatment the lump persists then biopsy or FNAC of the lump has to be done to see what is causing this lump. Secondly,this feeling of something in the throat while swallowing is called globus hystericus. Globus hystericus is a subjective sensation where people feel a lump in the throat. At times, it is associated with difficulties swallowing. They are probably related to psychological problems. The most common cause is gastro esophageal reflux disease - GERD.
Avatar n tn I had a torn miniscus and below my knee is very swollen and under the knee to the right where ham string is. I have been at Physical Therapy going on 5 months now and still can't bend it and still having problems. It's very hard to do anything because of the discomfort and pain and aches. Doctor just says it's soft tissue problems. But why, I don't understand what is taking so long to heal. Any ideas?
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 About 3 months ago I had my first episode with this. My hands got warm, itchy, and swollen. The swelling moved up to about 1 inch above my wrist. I went to the doc and he said it was angiodema. Gave me a shot of cortisone. One mone later my lower left lip started to swell and it move up the right side of my face. Went to doc and got another shot. Now about another month I got a episode on the left side of my face. Another shot.
Avatar n tn he said there's nothing to worry about. It's not lump. It's my xiphoid process. Swollen right then because of too much pressing and attention I've been giving it for the past 7 or 8 months. He even denied me when I insisted to undergo biopsy. I pointed out to him that I also have lymph nodes... weak immune system he said--not getting enuf sleep lately. The lump like appearance of my xiphoid process was because I lost weight due to dieting and gym.
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 Wow I thought it was just me... I started getting this "shock" about 3 months ago. It is on my inner thigh, about 12" above the knee. Occurs mostly while I'm sitting, but one day it happened alomost continually while I was walking, would hit me every time I took a step with that leg. It ranges from a simple light, bizzare flutter, to a full blown shock causing my leg to jerk upward, very disconcerting if I happen to be in a meeting or room full of people.
Avatar n tn I continued doing that until the lump was no longer pink and swollen. Though I could still feel something in under my armpit, so I'm going to see an internist soon.
Avatar m tn now I cannot stay long time in a yoga possition on my chair. and my muscle above the knee gives little pain above the knee. anyway does any of these symptoms have any connection with the ulcer. and I can still feel the swollen stomach. How serious is an ulcer and tell me the connection..
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 And if you have please come back and let us know what you found out. I too have a lump that I've recently found but its above my breast and closer to the center of my chest. Definitely feels like its on my rib - hurts to the touch and like someone else said, it actually feels like the pain extends to my back. I have shortness of breath - easy tasks now make me out of breath. Bizarre.
Avatar f tn I'm calling my doctor today because I finished up the medicine she gave me and I'm still very swollen, the sensitivity went away but obviously having a swollen clitoris and inner labia isn't comfortable! I will ask her about that. However, for it's not the hood that really swollen, it's my inner labia. But my clitorus does feel very hard underneath the hood like you mentioned. As if it was eroused and stayed that way. My doesn't feel sore to touch but it doesn't feel normal either.
215234 tn?1305146561 Hi, I'm hoping for some help with the following problem, as having just finished a course of antibiotics ( Azithromycin 500) for a suspected "lymph node infection" which apparently is pressing on the Trigeminal nerve. I am still finding the pain unbearable, & feel its only subsided slightly.
Avatar m tn then went to see the GP. I have very swollen lymph nodes that appear to be spreading from the top of my right leg. I have no obvious sign of infection, however, as its in the lymphatic system its going to be something to do with my immune system that they need to do further tests for.
Avatar m tn I will try to make this as short as possible, so please bare with me I am a 35 year old heterosexual male. Seven years ago, I had intercourse with a stranger. The exposure was condom-protected vaginal sex and oral (receiving). One other detail I will note is that she bled on my leg from her vagina. She said it was due to her being on her period. Fast-forward 21 days later...I had a painful throbbing sensation in my penis. It was not in my urethra, nor did I have trouble urinating at all.
Avatar n tn 5 mins ago I noticed I small hard lump about the size of a quarter just above my knee. Doesnt hurt at all but thought it could be related. I wondering if tore something? Any help would be helpful...

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.
Avatar f tn All above is still happening however, I am now having swollen legs and feet, like very swollen, hard to touch, swollen hands. Severe pain in my lower left abdoninem, and aches and pains in my joints (knee, ankle, wrist, elbow) as well as upset tummy. If anyone knows what this could mean please write a post to me. I am going to the clinic tomorrow! Unless it gets even worse and I find a ride to the ER tonight!
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 m tn buttock pain - Left side of my groin feels swollen (clinician said I shouldn't worry, but I'm not convinced) - Spot/lump in my groin - no ooze, no blister (same side as swollen groin) - Spot in my pubic region, above my penis (clinician said this was an ingrown hair) - Strange tingling in knee joints and feet - Slight headache (I appreciate this could be due to the stress of the situation) No - individually, I'd look at these things and say; tiredness, stress from work, pain from the gym

Avatar m tn Got a small lump on my scrotum that did not pop like a pimple. It just stood there. - 1 week later: Had testicular pain on my right testicle, which lasted about 2 - 3 weeks. Pain was every now and then and wasn't painful. It was mild pain. - 3 weeks after having unprotected: Got a rash that was very itchy for 3 days on the side of my neck, chest, and side of torso. They consisted mainly of a very few small raised red spots and some popped like pimples.
