I have a painless lump just above knee cap. It's beneath the skin and not visible but can be felt. Can move it around with my finger. What can it be?
Noticed a painless lump (budge) above right knee in the VMO area. I noticed it a few months back and seems to be more apparent after run or exercise.
Painless oval lump above right knee. Firm and doesn't seem to move. No discomfort or recent injury. Near former unicameral bone cyst. ?
More information ndd: You probably have an idea whether it's in the skin layer or deeper. It sounds deeper than the skin (doesn't move). Since firm, it's prob. not a benign fat tumor (lipoma). In that case it suggests either a cyst (fluid-filled) or a fibroma (think of as overgrowth of scar tissue), both also benign.

I found a small lump right above my knee. It is not growing and it is painless it appeared a day after basket ball should I worry ?

Possibilities include an effusion, bursitis, Baker's cyst, and many others. BUT, it's not likely something terrible like a tumor since those don't usually pop up in one day.

I have a large hard lump behind my knee. It is painless . Two years ago i had a mastectomy due to a borderline phyllodes could they ne related ?
DOUBTFUL: A painless lump behind the knee may be a bakers cyst, an orthopedic issue. It is not likely to be associated with a phylloides tumour of the breast. Phylloides are not malignant in a classic sense, but have a tendency to local recurrence. I suggest you ask for an ortho consult to examine the knee mass. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
