Hi! thanks for sharing your health problem with HCM!

After going through your problem of knee pain with lump on the top, I would like to consider following possibilities AS PER MY ROUTINE CLINICAL EXPERIENCE:


1. benign cystic conditions like bursa, ganglion cyst etc possibility 60%

2. Inflammatory like synovitis, synovial herniation, patellar dislocation, synovial effusion etc , possibility 20%

3. benign solid tumor or tumor-like conditions like giant cell tumor, lipoma, neurofibroma, dermatofibroma, cysts possibility 20%

Therefore, it is could be a cause for worries in the future!.


And you must confirm the diagnosis by ultrasonography and needle biopsy as advised by your doctor and thereafter discuss with him the possible treatment options.
