Sounds like: ruptured tendon, but you need to see a doctor to make sure that it is not thrombophlebitis, especially if you have risk factors such as birth control pills,smoking, protracted immobility, or recent surgery. This can lead to a pulmonary embolus, a potentially life threatening problem. ...Read more

Possible : Ganglion, but, since i can't see it, i would recommend you have it checked out to make sure the "lump" is indeed a benign lesion. ...Read more

A little more info: If it is movable and just under the skin, it can b a small inclusion cysts not originating from the knee. Ur scratching has caused the changes u describe. U should c an ortho surgeon 2 have it evaluated & perhaps excision if u can't keep ur hands away from it. It may get infected & cause problems. ...Read more

Keep an eye on it: I would not worry about it right now. But do check it once weekly and monitor its size. Unless it grows bigger over the next 1-2 months, it is unlikely to be a serious matter. I suspect it is a small clot of blood which should subside in a month or two. If it does not get smaller or if it grows bigger, get it checked by your doctor.. ...Read more
