Hi, ive been starting to get like an ache in the lower thigh above the knee and this is on my right leg. I think it would be cysts but not sure. ?

Probably not: Unless you see any red bumps or sweeping on your leg, cysts generally don't appear inside your leg to cause pain. There may be some other minor causes of pain such as ligament injury or muscle inflammation. You should take Ibuprofen and apply heat to the area and see a doctor if it doesn't go awY in a week. Feel good ...Read more

I've been getting an odd wet sensation on my lower thigh just above the back of my knee. I noticed it 4 days ago at first it wasn't painful just annoy?

Curious, but not: unheard of. Typically, an unusual sensation--sensing wet but it isn't!--is a manifestation of nerve dysfunction, most probably a small fiber neuropathy. Curiously, the location you report---the leg/thigh--is one of the more common sites reported for this unusual wet sensation. Neuropathies can be caused by diabetes, metabolic abnormalities, toxic exposures,etc. A neurologist can help sort this out ...Read more

How do I relief inflammation in knee its starting to swell above the knee in the thigh region.

How do I relief inflammation in knee its starting to swell above the knee in the thigh region.

R.I.C.E.: Try ice and elevation first. 20 minutes on, 30-40 minutes off. Keep the foot above the heart. It is a natural way to stop swelling by constricting the blood vessels and allowing fluid to drain back to the heart via gravity. Sounds line a possible knee effusion that could need drainage. If ice doesn't improve your swelling, go see your regular doctor or orthopedist. Good luck! ...Read more
