??: You should consult your orthopedic surgeon regarding this it may not be anything significant but you should communicate it to the surgeon in the mean time try hot; cold packs and wrap the knee with plastic wrap at bed time this frequently helps.

Varies: There are multiple potential causes. You may have sustained a meniscal tear or other internal derangement of the knee. I would not hesitate to be seen and thoroughly evaluated. An MRI may be helpful.

Have large knot behind knee, calf it's has gotten bigger. Leg painful and having muscle cramps. Hurts to bend it, stand, lay it on things. What is it?

See MD: Sounds like a Bakers' or politeal cyst most commonly seen secondary to arthritis w/ a degenerative meniscal (cartilage) tear. Fluid from your knee joint leaks out thru the tear in the cartilage (and knee capsule) and collects and forms the cyst. Very common; however see your primary care physician to rule out other potential problems (DVT, etc.)best of luck!

I have a bad strain behind my knee, I can't bend my leg and when I walk I can't put any pressure on it without hurting, what should I do?

Knee pain: Could be hamstring or gastroc strain, possibly capsule or acl or PCL tears. Check with orthopedic surgeon, give good history, get good physical exam, get x-ray/imaging to check for bone injury. Initial ice, rest, brace, elevate.

Pain behind left knee when I bend it and it hurts to lay on it?

Baker's Cyst: Pain behind the knee with fullness and pain suggest a possible baker's cyst. A baker's cyst is a natural outpouching of the knee joint that can get full of knee joint fluid and can make it difficult to move the knee. This should however be evaluated by an orthopedic specialist for a proper diagnosis.

Pain behind my knee when I sit to long. Also hurts when I try to bend it?

Pain behind my knee when I sit to long. Also hurts when I try to bend it?

Baker's cyst: By far the most common cause for pain in this location is a benign baker's cyst. These sit between the hamstring muscle/ tendon group and the calf (gastrocsoleus) muscles. Most common cause iskneearthritis w/ a degenerative meniscus (cartilage) tear. The tear can cause a rent in the knee joint capsule and allow joint fluid to escape into the back of the knee and form the cyst.

See an orthopedist: Sounds like you have a meniscal tear or cartilage injury. Some of your symptoms are typical - including pain and locking. Other symptoms may include swelling, clicking, and instability. Check in with a local orthopedic surgeon for an evaluation. He will probably recommend physical therapy initially and perhaps an MRI depending on you examination. Arhtroscopic surgery may be necessary.

What would cause progressively worse knee pain that stems from behind the knee? It is painful to bend and to walk?

Baker's cyst?: Several causes of pain behind the knee. I assume no recent trauma--you may have a baker's cyst--basically a collection of joint fluid extruded outside of the joint and formed sack there behind the knee...As it enlarges, it can cause pain and reduces ability to bend the knee. A bit clot in the back can do so as well, but you don't have other symptoms to suggest that. Consult your doc. Good luck.

I am 33 and I have a pain behind my knee whenever I kneel down or bend by knee more than 90 degrees and push knee out.?

Baker cyst?: You may need MRI of this knee. Chances are you developed baker cyst. Tx for this condition is usually conservative unless it broke; it it broke than you may need surgery. Mri may also shed light on other conditions. Go and see your doctor to sort it out.

Pain behind the knee everytime I bend it to squat down and get it straight. What could it be. Cannot walk on it long. Please help.

Any h/o knee injury: At age 33, knee pain likely represents past injury. Other concerns include either a baker's cyst or a clot in the deep veins. If this is present for more than a week, you should see your pcp. You might need an ultrasound to evaluate further.

See details: It could be a simple sprain or contusion or something more involved such as a tear. If it does not respond to ice and rest, have an orthopedist take a look.

I have pain in my knee front and behind and up to thigh...its worse when I bend it or have been sat down, it eases with massage, scared its a clot?

I have pain in my knee front and behind and up to thigh...its worse when I bend it or have been sat down, it eases with massage, scared its a clot?

Pain knee and above: If it eases with massage it is more likely to be muscular pain. If you have risk factors and it is not resolving ask your doctor for a Doppler ultrasound of that area to absolve your fears. All the best.
