Painful lump below knee after fall and glass injury
Patient : Hi, 6 months ago I fell on my right knee onto some glass, which became embedded. Following this I had a minor surgical procedure to remove the glass, however since, I have been left with a hard lump just under my knee cap where I had the procedure. The lump often aches and is extremely painful to kneel on, even after all this time. It is very noticeable when my knee is bent too. Please could you give me some insight as to what this may be and whether or not it will go by itself.
