yes, you can send me a photo
here are instructions
type a word in the textbox and highlight it
then select the "chain" icon above the textbox or the paper clip icon to upload a jpg
this opens a window where you can click next to the text box to select the jpg or pdf file on your computer to upload into JustAnswer
it sounds like you might have ruptured a vein or a synovial cyst or a bakers cyst behind your knee
you should put some ice on it and get to an ER or urgent care center to see a doctor right away.
