There is a red, swollen, painful area just below of my knee. Is it tumor ?

Hello, My name is Brad. I m five feet, ten inches tall, and i m 56. Throughout my life, my weight has always been around 155, i ve never had hypertension , always had normal cholesterol, i ve never smoked nor consumed liquor, I never had diabetes , and I have a history of cellulitis affecting various parts of my anatomy . On my right leg, just below the knee , in between the front and left of the leg, there is a red, swollen, painful area that seems firm-hard when touching it. It just started revealing itself recently. I don t recall bumping it or twisting that area. I m aware of P.A.D. and have been doing some reading about it. Maybe it s a tumor, a blood clot, or something less sinister. Thank you very much. Good bye.

Welcome to healthcareMagic.
Thank you for your query.
It may be varicose vein or SOL or phlebitis or warts etc.
Kindly consult a Dermatologist and a Physician to diagnose your condition.
Visual examination is a must by a doctor to see the lesion and to diagnose the condition.
Thank you
