Pain /swelling behind knee

#1
Quitepossibly age-related :oops: but the soft tissue behind me knee has been giving me gyp, its mildy painful when I bend it and its swollen. Running makes it a bit worse; I've seen my GP and some bone specialist bloke but nothig really forthcoming.

Any ideas?

TIA

I'd really get back to the doctor with something like this. Could be anything from an infection to a tumour, I'd go and make it very clear you want an answer. I don't think a knee is something you should get an opinion on from anything less than a doctor, there are plenty of things that can go wrong with them.

Sorry I couldn't be any more help.

:D You'll all be doing it soon...

The swelling is not permanent ( oooh Matron ) but it is limited to the soft tissue. I've had an MRI scan which showed nowt but by the time I'd booked the MRI I'd rested and the swelling ( ooh you ARE awful ) had subsided which might explain why nothing seen.
If I lie on my back and bend my knees up towards my chest one leg does not bend as much as the other, if that makes sense...

@ Dr_C - thanks.

I did for a while have fluid collecting in my knee joints while Thai Boxing...and so swelling and losing mobility. Summary......it could be because your taking to many kicks :p.

Nope, its a generalised swelling, not the size of a vein.

A&E for an X Ray, don't trust your GP, mine's been telling me for a year I had IBS, it's turned out to be something far worse and now I've got a fooking Colostomy insitu.
