Lump and ache pain behind knee. Bakers cyst or tumor or varicose vein?

Lump and ache pain  behind knee. Bakers cyst or tumor or varicose vein?

I have a vericose vein on my left leg on the calf muscle can this cause leg & knee pain?

I have a vericose vein on my left leg on the calf muscle can this cause leg & knee pain?

Spuriously, yes: Varicosities in and of themselves do not cause knee pain(s), rather the extremity in question typically aches, feels "full, " and occasionally sharp pains may be sensed along the vein or its tributaries. The lesser saphenous vein starts near the lateral, posterior ankle and extends up to the popliteal fossa (the space behind the knee). Plan: ultrasound to assess for reflux, a baker's cyst or dvt. ...Read more
