I had a baby 6 months ago. About 1 1/2 2months ago I noticed some blue spots behind my knee undernieth where it creases. Should I be concerned?

Varicose Veins: Those blue spots are likely varicosities (varicose veins) that remained after the pregnancy. A big uterus with a baby sometimes compresses on your vena cava and prevents blood from flowing up and out of your legs and so it leads to bulging vessels, unfortunately. Nothing to worry about unless these vessels harden, get red, or get painful. ...Read more

Movable lump in right crease groin about olive size. Pain in both knees and thigh comes and goes usually worse when siting for long periods. Cancer?
