Brief Answer: Not related to vaginal sling. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query. A vaginal sling is not likely to cause a lump at the back of the knee or thigh. The sore lump that you have is likely to be a soft tissue swelling related to skin or muscle. It can be a myoma fibroma or a lipoma. A direct examination of the lump and tests like FNAC will help in the proper diagnosis. Do consult your physician for the same. I hope this answers your query. In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Praveen Tayal.
