Depends on cause of: The swelling: 1: blood clot, once diagnosed can be treated with clot busters, 2: rupture of a cyst behind the knee, is treated with pain meds, etc. 3: if swelling is due to a bony lesion, its removal can be done; 4: soft tissue swelling, from a tumor, infection, fluid collection(incl. Blood) will need to be removed or drained. Ask your pcp for the specific symptoms that you have, and he'll help.
