The Lump Under The Knee Of The Right Leg Can Move?
I want to ask this there is a lump in my right leg. I also didn’t know that suddenly there was, I was confused, to be precise, the lower knee of my right leg was flaccid, can I move the lump with my hand, how is it and how is it healing
Hello, Nugroho Bagues Wibowo, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A lump on the knee can have several possible causes:
1. Baker's cyst, a fluid-filled lump on the back of the knee
2. Lipoma, a lump consisting of a collection of fatty tissue. Usually seems to be under the skin, not painful.
3. Ganglion cyst
4. Skin abscess, which is a lump due to a collection of pus. Redness and pain.
To find out the exact cause, you should check with your doctor. The doctor will conduct an interview, a physical examination by looking at and touching the lump, performing a physical examination of other relevant organs, and if necessary, supporting examinations such as x-rays to biopsy (looking at the tissue under a microscope to determine whether the lump is benign or malignant) . The cure depends on the cause. Most cases of lumps will be removed in whole or in part for examination of the tissue.
What you can do to prevent worsening is to keep the bump area clean and not to squeeze / hold the bump, especially with unwashed hands. If you feel pain, you can take paracetamol to relieve it. Rest the part with the lump.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
Greetings, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
