Lumpy Knee
« on: April 19, 2009, 10:55:06 PM »
I fell on my knee a month ago, the swelling has gone down and I have full movement in it.

However it is still tender to touch ( in certain places ) the front of my Knee.

When I massage it I feel a small somewhat moveable lump that is causing the tenderness, also after I touch this small lump it feels like I have pins and needles in that area. I also get this pins and needles feeling after I run..... :-\

Anybody know what this lump is...will it go after time?

Thanks  :)

After a bit of research the only thing I can find that may be causing the problem is Patellar bursitis

Do you think my description in the above post matches Patellar bursitis??


Thanks :)

If the swelling is on the kneecap, then yes, that sounds exactly right.

Yes the swelling was on the kneecap, however it has since gone. All that is left is the lump causing discomfort.

Will this fade after time or should I get it look at? It has been a month since my injury.


Thanks

Wrapping it and icing it may help.  It should get better on its own though.
