Hard Lump On The Knee After Impact?
Greetings, I’m Danissa. R nOne week ago I had a little accident. My knee area was hit quite hard. At that time there was only bruising and swelling. Now the bruising and swelling have reduced. But now, if you feel the area where the collision is to be exact, on the side of the knee, there is a hard lump like a bone in that location. Pain occurs only when the lump is pressed. But I can still walk normally. For this condition what should I do. Answer please. Greetings, thank you
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of the appearance of a lump on the knee that feels painful can be caused by the following:
Buildup of blood or pus
Position of shifting bones
Inflammation of the lubricating fluid-filled sac around the joint or bursitis
To be able to determine what condition you are experiencing, further tests are needed that use imaging technology such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI to be able to find out what is behind the lump, whether it is composed of solid, liquid, bone or something like that. Our advice, check your condition at the orthopedist to be able to get the examination, and the treatment will depend on the results of your examination.
Meanwhile, avoid squeezing or pressing the lump, please take an over-the-counter pain medication to relieve pain when it hurts, warm compresses, and immediately consult a doctor. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
