new member and a question
« on: June 09, 2006, 11:28:33 AM »
HI, im Donna and im 23...

about a month ago i started getting a lot of pain in my left knee..so i went to the orthopedic dr and had the usual, the x ray showed no problems and so i went for an MRI. The dr. informed me that right in the middle towards the back of the knee i have a growth (a little over an inch big) he said its not attached to anything and its not bone a cyst or cartalige...i went for another MRI with the dye injection..same thing...he has no idea what it is...about a week ago i went to the er due to severe pain and the dr pulled up a picture of my MRI, there was just this big white circle floating right in the center..he perscribed vicodin and that was that.. so now im getting worried...he (my orthopedic dr) mentioned a possibility of cancer and im going to an orthopedic oncologist next tuesday...has anyone had anything similar...or any thoughts to ease my mind?

thank you

Donna, I had a growth in my knee..didn't show up on Mri or x-rays..found it during scope..
it was like a band not attached to anything special....and it wasn't cancer...my doc had done thousands of scope but never seen anything like that.
Wish you the best of luck on tuesday..don't worry..no meaning in that.
