Orthopaedics consult: 33 year old woman with calf stiffness and an ipsilateral painless soft tissue mass. As you can imagine, the best course of action is an in person physical exam, in this case with an orthopaedic surgeon who can best evaluate your stiffness and decide on imaging and or a biopsy if necessary to give a definitive pathological diagnosis of your soft tissue mass.

I found a small lump right above my knee. It is not growing and it is painless it appeared a day after basket ball should I worry ?
Don't worry...: ...but, you should at least have it evaluated. A "lump" above your knee joint after playing basketball suggests an injury to the joint or the soft tissues around the joint. Possibilities include an effusion, bursitis, Baker's cyst, and many others. BUT, it's not likely something terrible like a tumor since those don't usually pop up in one day. Still, see an orthopaedic surgeon for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Inadequate info: Swelling on the knee can be due to bursitis or joint effusion. There are other less common reasons like meniscus cysts. You need a good history and exam that will usually accurately diagnose the condition. The chilblains is not related to this and also needs a detailed history and exam.

I have a large hard lump behind my knee. It is painless . Two years ago i had a mastectomy due to a borderline phyllodes could they ne related ?
DOUBTFUL: A painless lump behind the knee may be a bakers cyst, an orthopedic issue. It is not likely to be associated with a phylloides tumour of the breast. Phylloides are not malignant in a classic sense, but have a tendency to local recurrence. I suggest you ask for an ortho consult to examine the knee mass. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
