I have a lump about the size of a marble that hurts on the inside of my knee , it s visibly more swollen than the other. I haven t injured it and the weird thing is there was a huge bruise before the bump came about, but I didn t do anything to bruise my knee and it took a while to go away, it still hurts and the lump is concerning. I had blood tests done and they showed everything as normal a few months back.
