Painless lump on knee and I have freezing feet with chill blanes?

Inadequate info: Swelling on the knee can be due to bursitis or joint effusion. There are other less common reasons like meniscus cysts.

Painless oval lump above right knee. Firm and doesn't seem to move. No discomfort or recent injury. Near former unicameral bone cyst. ?

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).

Don't worry...: ...but, you should at least have it evaluated. A "lump" above your knee joint after playing basketball suggests an injury to the joint or the soft tissues around the joint.

Still, see an orthopaedic surgeon for evaluation. ...Read more
