Detailed Answer:
Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon.
In my opinion if you had injury few weeks ago which has not healed with persistent lump in knee and inability to bend elbow , Then you should get an x ray of both elbow and knee ASAP. You may require MRI of knee also if x rays are normal.
Thanks for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.
