I am very fit, train boxing three times a week. Have just noticed swollen sore vein on inside of knee, is this bad? Hurts to walk and pops out.

In brief: That is

In the area of the superficial saphenous vien and if tender, prominent and at all reddish then there may be a clot in the vein.
Not as important as if in a deep vein but should be evaluated by your doctor or a physician in a competent urgent care center or fast track of an emergency department. In the meantime warm compresses, and Ibuprofen and rest the limb.
