20 year-old woman with 2 painful left popliteal lumps, "inconclusive" x-ray and MRI, leading to difficulty standing or walking.....?
Excisional Biopsy: Since the X-rays and MRI are inconclusive, it would be prudent to have one of the lumps removed for pathological evaluation (excisional biopsy). It is likely a benign process, like an angiolipoma, a neurfoibroma, a neurilemoma or a Masson's tumor, but a pathological diagnosis is your best option at this time. Plus, removing the lump will likely make the pain resolve. Good luck. ...Read more

Various quad sets: Depending on your activity level and whether there is patella (kneecap) problems, there are many safe exercises for the quads. I do not recommend knee extension and knee flexion machines, which can make knee problems worse. I prefer straight leg raises, exercise bicycle, and gentle (slow) stairclimbing. Forcing yourself not to limp will also help. Lunges and squats are more difficult but effective. ...Read more

Overuse: The simplest answer is that you may have overdone it and are just very sore! Lactic acid buildup is what causes muscle soreness, and as you continue to exercise the muscles will better manage it so you don't feel like this every time you exercise. Although painful right now, gentle stretching can help alleviate the sore burning sensation, as will time. Don't get discouraged; keep exercising! ...Read more
