Hi and thanks for the query,
this could either be due o a simplle inflammatory process, a cyst
, a mass or a knee infection
. Mechanical causes such as mild to moderate trauma could also explain the clinical syndrome. Associated signs and symptoms like fever
, lalaise could also be useul to know. Complete blood counts and markers of inflammation could be very helpful in orienting the diagnosis. Depending on the case, X rays, MRI
control scans might be required at some point in time. The knee is a complex joint and clinical examination is key in orienting diagnostic reasoning and management.
The opinion of a knee surgery
specialist could be most welcome in this situation.
Thanks and best regards,
