Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

Most likely it is due to muscle strain and injury to ligaments and tendons of the knee but we have to rule out any fracture as well. Although from your symptoms fracture is a relatively less possibility yet an x-ray knee needs to be done to rule out even a small hair line fracture.

Apply some cold compresses by wrapping ice in a towel and consult an orthopedician as you may need Ibuprofen or Diclofenac. Also avoid putting any pressure on the injured area or doing activities which aggravate the pain.

Also consult your doctor and get an x-ray and MRI of the area to rule out any soft tissue injury.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

As mentioned earlier, an MRI of the knee should help in diagnosing the cause of the lump in the knee and the knee pain.

Hence, please consult an orthopedics surgeon and he'll likely get the MRI done. You can take some over the counter analgesics to get some relief from the pain.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.
