Hello,

As per your history, it may be hematoma due to injury.

For that, you may require aspiration after orthopedician consultation.

For pain, you can take tablet acetaminophen. Do hot compressions.

Restrict your movements. Use support while walking.

Hope I have answered your query and let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician

I have pain in the back of my right knee outer side up through the hamstring. Pain comes on at nightime for the last two nights. I recently was prescribed orthotics for my dress shoes while at work. Started wearing them on monday this week and yesterday and today have not worn the dress shoes, only sneakers. I have no bruising or swelling, skin is normal color and consistent temp with the rest of my body. Is the pain from my legs falling on bad habits without the orthotics or something more
