Question: Hi, I banged my left XXXXXXX bone very hard on the under carriage of a shopping cart two and a half weeks ago. The area bruised slightly, but was very painful. It is still very painful even though the bruise is gone. There is a hard painful knot on the XXXXXXX bone that can be felt under the skin.

Thanks for posting your query.

It might be soft tissue injury or fracture. This hard knot most probably formed due to haematoma formation (collection of blood) which might get fibrosed or calcified secondary to fracture or soft tissue injury.

Without X-ray, it is difficult to differentiate a fracture from others. I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.

In the interim, you can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid putting weight and rest well.

Hope I was able to address your concern. Let me know if you need any more help.

I had compound fracture with im rod & screws 7 years ago. The rod was removed 4 years ago & i had knee surgery for torn meniscus. I had occasional knee pain throughout the years that has since increased to a dull deep ache every other day. I lost my arch immediately after the first surgery its uncomfortable to walk long distance. While walking the knee often it clicks. Its caused chain reaction of other problems including back/hip pain & shoulder surgeries prbly due to crutches. Is it time to get the knee checked out to see whats going on?
