Lipoma: Most likely a lipoma that has gotten irritated. Given that the knee is a hinge joint, that area of your knee is exposed to stress. If you noticed that the lump has recurred and increased in size and/or tenderness, get your knee examined. ...Read more

My husband has a pea sized lump on his leg.It bleeds regularly. The edge is black the middle is red. Should i be worried? He won't go to the doctor...

Please share: There are two things this could be: a common, benign, hemangioma (a cherry tumor of extra blood vessels that are common on skin with age) or a skin cancer. Most cancers on the skin can be cut out and then not bother one again. Getting them gone is simple and is so much better than letting something simple become life threatening. I would bet a simple visit to the family doctor may solve this. ...Read more

Exam needed to know: A plugged hair follicle could do this. Much more information would be needed. Is it deep or superficial? What color is it? Is it painful? A medical exam is the best way to find out what it might be. ...Read more

I have a small pea size lump under skin behind my knee on crease of back of leg. It has been itching. Now it is purple/red from me scratching it?

A little more info: If it is movable and just under the skin, it can b a small inclusion cysts not originating from the knee. Ur scratching has caused the changes u describe. U should c an ortho surgeon 2 have it evaluated & perhaps excision if u can't keep ur hands away from it. It may get infected & cause problems. ...Read more

Keep an eye on it: I would not worry about it right now. But do check it once weekly and monitor its size. Unless it grows bigger over the next 1-2 months, it is unlikely to be a serious matter. I suspect it is a small clot of blood which should subside in a month or two. If it does not get smaller or if it grows bigger, get it checked by your doctor.. ...Read more
