Lump on Knee?

Answer

A lump on the knee can result from several different things. The most common cause for a knee lump is an injury that has occurred to it. This can happen because of a fall or a blow to the knee. Other causes can include a cyst, bone infection, tumor, boil, or an abscess. If the lump is at the back of the knee, it is likely a Bakers cyst, which is harmless. If the lump does not go away on its own in a few days, you may want to visit the doctor to determine the real cause for it.
