Knee lump

Hi, I blew my knee out in 2003. Tore my ACL, MCL and damaged the patellar. Also had my meniscus scrape. I've now been doing physio, weight training, and strength exercises so that I can return to snowboarding this winter. Problem is, I always have to push or roll a "bump" on inside of my left knee. It's hard, could possibly be a bone, but it isn't painful when I push it in. When is does come out though, it is an odd sensation, especially when I bend my knee. It only seem to appear after a period of exercises.

Any suggestions? I will be seen a doctor about it, as I would like to solve this asap.

Hi Dave!
A moving lump that can be pushed inside can be a bursa, a loose bone or cartilage or fluid in the joint bulging out through a bursa or membrane. A MRI of the joint is required for correct diagnosis. Please consult your orthopedic specialist regarding this. Take care!
