Dear Jacustomer ,

I am sorry to know about your present symptoms ,

The knee cap symptoms is not linked to your foot symptoms , I will recommend a doctor visit who can do a physical exam , imaging tests , complete blood count , ra factor , esr as underlying rheumatological disease (arthritis ) , tendonitis or infection can present with similar swelling as you described . Subcutaneous or ganglion cyst also can present similarly but that too requires doctor exam to rule it out .
Trauma also can present with similar swelling .
The doctor can also do range of motion test for knee joint as that will help him know the underlying cause of knee cap pain .

Thanks

OK
Now
Is this lump under the skin like a marble or does it look like a boil a skin infection
Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
no it is under the skin and not small
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 5 years ago
OK
Ganglion cyst..this can go away on its own sometimes..sometimes needs drainage for infection
Lipoma..a fat collection...can be painful sometimes.

You need a hands on exam to tell for sure..and if this needs to be treated.

This might be interfering with how you walk..and this can be straining your knee and giving you a tendinitis or ligament stain there as well.

See an orthopedist to treat this.
Let me know if you have further questions, details or need clarification, just use reply.......

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
