Hello Siti Ifadoh, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.

Knee lumps can be caused by several things:

-      Abscess, is a lump because there is a collection of pus on the skin and is reddish, tender, and painful

-     Baker's cyst, is a lump filled with fluid, located behind the knee that will be painful when active

-     An inflammatory reaction of the knee due to impact, injury to muscles or other structures such as bones, joints and supporting tissues

-     Ganglion cysts, which are benign lumps filled with fluid and often appear in joints

-      Lipoma, which is a soft lump consisting of a collection of fatty tissue and seems to be under the skin. Can be painful if infected.

To find out the exact cause, you can immediately check this with your doctor. The doctor will examine your knee and if there are indications, additional examinations such as X-rays to biopsy / take a small amount of tissue to be examined under a microscope. Danger or not depends on the results of the examination. In general, if the lump is not enlarged, painless, does not compress surrounding structures, or there are no other symptoms such as fever, weight loss, and fractures, then there is nothing to worry about. But to know it all, again, it's better to consult and check directly with your doctor.

Treatment really depends on the cause. If there are indications of infection, then the treatment requires antibiotics. However, if it is a large lump, surgery is usually required.

To reduce complaints, you can temporarily take painkillers such as paracetamol, compress with warm water, and rest the painful part.

That's it, I hope it's useful.

Regards,
