Suggest treatment for lump behind knee crease
Unlikely to be a blood clot as per your history.
Thanks for your query.
Read and understood your history of a lump of the size of a grape on the inner side of the knee crease, painful to touch and no swelling in the rest of the leg.
D-dimer test 3 months ago was negative, which you must have done due to standing job in retail.
May I please know a few details needed for me to assist you more:
- Since when have you got this swelling?
- Is it freely movable under the skin or seem to be attached to the skin make it move with the skin, may be with dimpling of the skin?
The swelling may be most probably either a lipoma or a sebaceous cyst.
It looks to be highly for any blood clot.
I hope this answer helps you, please feel free to ask for further queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
Please give feedback.
Most probably inflamed Sebaceous cyst. Needs confirmation
Thanks for your feedback.
Noted that the swelling moves with the skin when you grasp it, noticed a few hours ago after applying the lotion. XXXXXXX swelling with skin, slightly painful to touch and other information is suggestive of inflamed sebaceous cyst as the most probable cause.
This may be confirmed by a clinical examination by a General Surgeon and ultrasonography (if required) with color doppler to rule out any vascular or otherwise pathology.
I hope this answers your query.
