Hello,. I want to ask, I have a small hard lump on my knee that has been there for a long time but doesn’t cause any side effects. But this is the first time that something comes out like pus and feels pain when touched / squeezed, but after I squeezed it and it wasn’t bleeding anymore, this lump came back to normal again but it couldn’t go away. is this okay? do you need to see a doctor immediately?

Hello Kenenza,

Lumps on the knee can come from muscles, bones, skin, joints, or a tumor mass. Some of the conditions that cause lumps on the knee include:

Infection: acne, boils, folliculitis Ganglion cyst Baker's cysts atheroma cysts Lipoma Arthritis and accumulation of joint fluid History of trauma to the knee Presence of tumors and malignancies in the bones The presence of lumps in the body should be examined directly by a doctor so that the cause can be ascertained. The doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations, and if necessary supporting examinations with x-rays, blood tests, biopsy, CT scans, and MRI to help determine the cause of the lump. After the cause of the lump is known, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment. Treatment will be adjusted according to the results of the examination, with surgery, drugs, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Therefore I suggest that you check with your doctor in Sulu so that you can ascertain the cause and you can be given proper treatment. For the time being, you should not squeeze the lump and if the lump is painful you can compress the lump with a warm compress.

Thank you and hope it helps,

dr. Devika Y
