How can this lump which is dark brown in color on my knee be removed ?

Hello, I m a 27 year old female with no history of cancer , but I ve had cysts removed before. I have this dark brown lump on my knee , it s been there for years. It doesn t hurt, it never really has, and it hasn t gotten significantly larger. It s not even completely circular, more of an oval-shape. There used to be a wart near it, which was removed.

I am 73 yrs. old 250 lbs.. I have a small lump about the size of a ball (about half the size of a table tennis ball) on the outside of the left knee area, [Total Knee 2004]. It has grown in about 2 months It is hard and somewhat painful when touched, difficult to walk 200 yards or so. Orthopedic Surgeon opened the area, 4 incision and said, I have not seen anything like this in all my years! It was like a jell substance 3 colors orange,tan,red, all the way to the bone and no idea where it originated from! Altar Sound showed a solid Cyst. He removed what he could and stitched me up. This had all been sent to the lab, all negative for Cancer, Disease, and Infection! I still have a bulge on side of knee. It is still painful to walk any distance. He has me in therapy 2 weeks now, not much help also wearing a Knee brace. Therapist tested for strength which was very good.I was in DaNang, Vietnam, Agent Orange in 1963. I had Prostate Cancer, Gleason Score 8 Radical removed April 2010 3 Month later PSA 1.8 high risk fast growing, had 36 Radical Treatments Radiation. Could some of my problems be related to Agent Orange or another type of Virus? Help!!

I have a question about genital warts. my fiancé found out he has genital warts and we have not done anything due to the fact I have been scared of it but we have been sexual before we knew what it was. I have not shown any signs but on my pant line in the front I have noticed a big purple looking bump to me it looks more like the color of a bruise. my question is could it be a genital wart being up that high?

Hi, I had a very short case of genital warts on my scrodum and penis for just a few weeks when I was 17. I am now 42 and have been having some problems with an achy rectum as well as a fissure on the opening of my rectum and itching. I am somewhat concerned that the two could be related to possible rectal cancer. What do you think?

Can anal fissure lead to anal warts? I have had anal fissure on and off for years which makes bowel movements difficult. (Im now 22) but eventually someone told me to use Zinc Oxide, which helped heal them. a year later I get them again but this time I didnt have the ZO cream so I use hydrogen peroxide for a few days but switch to ZO again. They heal, but one day in the shower I feel small bumps, which when I saw them later- seemed like skin tags. I tried a few things to get rid of them, but then more bumps appear, and they are different and they seem like it could be warts...
