One of the concerns : Is a clot, a bakers cyst is another that comes to mind. A clot is serious if present and needs to be dealt with immediately. The question is did you already have he ultrasound or not? If you didnt go get it done...And do not wait a week. If you did and it was negative, i would call the doctors office anyway explain your ina lot of pain and ask to be seen earlier. Perhaps ice would help....
