Common Questions and Answers about Swollen lump under knee


Avatar n tn You had an inflammation of the soft tissue under your knee joint( bursa, tendon), which due to more stretching during the skatepark jump has inflammed and now you need rest, icepacks and anti inflammatory drugs. If it does not decrease you have to visit an orthopaedicain for an examination. 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 f tn Hi, I have a lump under my collar bone, more towards my shoulder. It has been there for about a month and doesn't seem to be going away. I does not hurt. What could this be?
Avatar n tn I recently felt what feels like a lump under my sternum, it feels like its connected to my sternum and only way i even relized he was there was because i was feeling around my stomach area one day. It really doesnt bother me but lately ive been noticing it more and more. I dunno if its all in my head just because i found it. Im just wondering if I should go see a doctor, ive read of the xiphoid process and im not sure if thats what it is.
Avatar n tn Hello, A week ago I found a lump under my left clavicle, It is right in the middle about hald an inch below my clavicle. It is hard and not tender ot painful. I thought it could be a swollen lymph node, but it doesn't move. It almost feels like it is attached to the top of my rib cage. (I am a 20 year old female, normal general health) I went to the doctor and got a blood test, urine test, and chest x-ray. Everything came back normal.
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 n tn I have a lump on the back of my knee. Is this a swollen lymph node. The only exposure I have had was kissing a man who told me he is not HIV+ but he could lie or not know. I am freaked cause cdc says it is a low risk. would a lump on my knee be indication of anything? For all i know it's been there all my life but lately i find myself poking around and trying to find things wrong with my body. Can someone help??? Please..

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 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 n tn Right now I have a small, painful lump in my leg, close to the back of the knee. I'm guessing it's a lymph node but I don't know if there are lymph nodes in that area. This lump is in my right leg. What could be causing swollen lymph nodes all over? And lymph node pain that seems to be moving down? I'm not showing other symptoms.
Avatar f tn If I bend the knee and press below the kneecap with my fingers (start at kneecap and work down) you'll hit it, and it feels like a thin rope or string going across under the knee, but the pain will be sharp on the right side of the knee. So far it sounds like it may be a nerve issue? May be caused by habitual knee crossing on that knee. Which makes sense, since I don't have the problem with the other knee. Does anyone else have it on the side on which you cross your legs?
Avatar f tn I have had some of the same issues, swollen lymph nodes under my Jaw, ear and and near my temple the doctor had put me on antibiotics and they all went down, I had it another time but it was swollen on my forhead and down the side by my temple and ear and jaw once more but it looked like I had a scab just above my hairline where it was red and getting bigger so he perscribed antibiotic cream and it went away. He never told me what it was. Is this all happening on one side of your body?
Avatar n tn Infection can linger that long--my youngest son had a golf ball size lump under his arm that turned out to be an infection. I can't see a lot of reason to ultrasound it, though. Did they try a good strong course of antibiotics to see if it responded to that? Eventually they will probably have to biopsy it or remove it. I don't think you will get a lot of info from an ultrasound, personally.
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 i am 13years old had have never had sex. i noticed a pee sized lump under my skin near my pubic bone with no white head or anything like a spot but it is really worrying be and i hate doctors, i am very shy and dont even think i could tell my mother about it. its scaring me to death SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!
Avatar n tn I am in my 60's and have only just started to have either a swollen face or, on the last two occasions, a swollen tongue, which all started in September. The first time I had a swollen tongue was 4 weeks ago and I ended up in hospital. I had already taken Piriton but it didn't help. At the hospital they gave me Prednisolone which worked very quickly and I was packed off home with another 2 days supply.
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 m tn After 10 weeks i started seeing some white thrush on my tongue and swollen lymph nodes under my ear (right ear has a significant swelling only when i stretch my neck and feel the lump or else i cannot feel it. The left side does not have a noticeable swelling but a very very small node that i can feel) which is painful on occasion in my neck and some times i fell pain near my abdominal and back of my upper shoulder and near my back for a few seconds and then it is gone.
Avatar n tn Please try to go to a neurologist, preferably, and see if you can start taking Gabapentin. It would be expensive I think with no insurance, but Gabapentin seems to be a life-saver for me so far.
Avatar m tn About 2-3 weeks ago however I discovered a very small lump under my left arm pit, it was painless and moveable. I went to my doctor however he was off and was seen by a stand-in who said it was a cyst not a node but agreed to me having more blood work done. A week later(last Friday) I went to see my proper GP who said that it was a node and not a cyst (face palms) but that it was small and he was not worried about it, he also said that my blood work was normal from the week before.
Avatar n tn I too had the pain and pressure under right ribcage and into my back and over time felt like a swollen organ, a pinching for over 2 years. After hydrascans, ct scans and sonograms that came back normal, I switched primary care provider to an NP that had pain management background. She knew exactly what the problem was. There is a muscle that runs from your back to your front and is attached to the underside of your rib cage.
Avatar f tn ~About 5 days after the chest pain started I got this feeling like I had a lump in my throat. They said it was from anxiety. But it would come and go through out the day no matter what if I was anxious or not. ~About a week after the chest pain a muscle on the back of my left shoulder started twitching NON STOP. Even in the middle of the night I would wake up and it would still be twitching. That went on for 3 weeks straight! Then it stopped.
Avatar m tn So I started jogging for about two days. Immediately my hands and legs(above the knee) got swollen . I felt tightness in them. I realized that my stomach was swollen too. On June 30, 2008 I consulted a GP who put me through a blood test and stool test. The stool test result stated "No Ova or parasites seen". while the blood test thyroid function and general chemistry was normal. The doctor put me on Nexium tablets twice a day and most of the swelling subsided but not completely.
1032970 tn?1252476523 Just noticed a nickel sized hotspot on my 7 yr old cockers back left leg, near the knee. Then I noticed her licking that paw and discovered a red lump under one of the pads - size of a large pea and looks irritated, bled a few drops after she was biting. We started giving her a few supplements about a month ago so think it could be a reaction to those - is this possible? Im concerned b/c both of the lesions are on the same leg.
Avatar n tn went to the doctor who felt the lump and the ridge under my breast and asked me to come back. went back yesterday and the lump was hormone related but i am still very sore in between and below breasts. she has now diagnosed me as having inflammed muscles between my ribs. but i very tired all the time and dealing with a sore back. it's hard not to think it's something more.
Avatar n tn I also had my gall bladder removed 6 years ago and it seems to be in this area and wondered about the connection.My tummy often seems swollen from under boobs downwards after it. I swear I look about 7 months pregnant. Its just all so annoying and unpredicatable when it happens.I am just surprised to find it so common.
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.
Avatar n tn When I went into surgery I had no pain except for my head, and when I came out I had this odd burning pain around my upper right quadrant accompanied by a small numb spot about 1 inch under my arm. I feel your pain. Hang in there. When you had knee surgery, did they have you on your left side?
Avatar n tn Please help me, i recently discovered a small spot on my bottom, just under where the cheek meets the thigh, at first i was not worried in the slightest but then about 2 days later, it began to get sore and has swollen quite a lot, there is now a lot of swelling particuarly on the insde and a lump has been created under my skin (if that makes sense?!)its about the size of a marble and is quite hard.
