Bumb on the knee

Edited , 2 users are following.

Hi everybody, I'm 16 years old and I'm really active I play basketball, jog/run every other day go out lot, and basically after some time playing of basketball I got pain in my right knee, went to doctor, and they said I have tear in meniscus after MRI test, had operation in December, after operation I had little bumb on the side of the knee, but after 4 months I started getting back to jogging and being more active, and after each time I run or walk longer distance the bumb gets bigger, but it doesn't hurt, maybe somebody knows why it happens , or have dealt with it and knows how to fix this issue, thanks.

    I had meniscus surgery about 5 years ago but did not experience a bump like that. although I did have swelling. I went back to my surgeon to confirm that nothing was wrong. I would suggest you see your doctor, or at the very least speak with them on the phone. It may be something minor but getting it sorted out early ,before it might become an issue, will be beneficial. Don't ignore things, get answers and then at the least you know how to move forward. In the meantime, perhaps you should refrain from doing as much activity until this goes away.
