Knee Arthroscopic done to remove torn meniscus and scrape arthritis. Concerned about lump below scope incision

I had a arthroscopic surgery of my knee to remove torn meniscus and scrape arthritis. Doing very well. Still have swelling when I exercise, but no drainage, bleeding, red skin, etc. But, I have a marble size lump directly beneath one of the scope incisions. Is this something to be alarmed about or is it normal?

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Based on your description, a small lump below the arthroscopy portal is definitely not normal but may not be a serious problem which is alarming. As you have no signs of infection in the joint, there is nothing much to worry about. Most propably, it could be either a seroma or a local stitch abscess.

Approach your treating doctor for further examination and evaluation.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
