after knee injury why would I get a "lump" or swelling on outer side of knee?
I had a knee injury in August, followed with physical therapy and lots of special treatment, now there is a slight swelling or lump on the outer side of the knee. The problem was patella chondromalacia and it is not hurting nearly as much now-only in certain situations like on my feet too much or too much walking and/or not taking enough ibuprofen. Usually when it does hurt it is on the inside lower part of the knee area, so why would I have something on the outside upper part of my knee?
