White Bumps On Knee
Worth having seen: Is it perhaps osgood-schlatter's, a distinctive hard bump on the top center of your shin bone? In any case, you want it seen -- you're a young man and there are some aggressive bony tumors that can arise here.
The only way to get: A correct diagnosis is to be evaluated by a physician and have the indicated imaging studies for an acurate diagnosis.
My husband has a blue dot bump on his knee that causes pain every once and a while what could it be?
Get it evaluated: It is impossible to say without actually being able to see the lesion. Because there are several possibilities including a melanoma, have his doctor take a look.
I have a huge bump on the side of my knee and when touched it hurts and feels hard. I have appointment in october and what is this should I be worrie?
Get appoint. Sooner: This could represent an old injury, bursitis or some other inflammation. Either way, I think october is a long time to wait for an acute problem. First you should see your primary care doctor if it is an orthopedist who has the long appointment time. They can often help you solve the problem and if not can help you get a more rapid appointment with the correct specialist.
Rash: Any skin condition is difficult to identify without seeing it or having more history. What does it look like? Is it red? Flad/raised? Etc. It could be that your knees have come into contact with something and is showing an allergic reaction. Could be eczema or psoriasis or skin rashes can sometimes be a sign of something going on internally. Best to have a doctor take a look and take a full history.See 1 more doctor answer
Random bumps underneath my knees. Itched at first and now have been there for 4 days. What are they?
Bumps: Hard to say. Multiple possibilities from folliculitis from shaving to insect bites to dermatitis. Given you are a sexually active young female who is or recently took plan b, do you have abrasions on your knees. Consider a topical antibiotic ointment first. If spreading or persistent more than a week seek in person consultation.
See below: Sounds like a baker's cyst, which is a collection of excess joint fluid which makes it's way out of the knee capsule to the back of the knee between two muscles. It is not a serious condition, but usually indicates an arthritic issue in the knee. It can cause discomfort. Sometimes we drain these but they usually come back. You shoud get your knee examined to determine if this is what it is.
Bakers cyst: The main reason for swelling behind the knee is a bakers cyst. Not a serious problem but very uncomfortable.
Right infront?: It is difficult to tell what type of problem you have from a short question/info you provided. Being 18 and I assume this is a new, large, painful bump (as pictured here?) is call a prepatella bursitis, inflammation of the area just infront of your knee cap. Often result from trauma/kneeling/falling on it a couple of days prior. Motrin/aleve may help. If worsens, consullt doc. Good luck.
Several things: This is one of those problems where a visit to your doctor is necessary to figure out what's going on. Only after a thorough evaluation, including examination and possibly labs and other tests, can your doctor correctly diagnose you and treat you effectively.
Cyst: A meniscal cyst may do what you are describing unusual for a knee to swell only on one side.
Medial knee bump: Consider meniscal cyst, arthritic spur, medial plica, loose body, or localized effusion.See 1 more doctor answer
