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.

Still, see an orthopaedic surgeon for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
