Benign Knee Tumour And Pain In Upper Thigh?

Postby Abe » Thu Sep 07, 2017 6:53 am

Towards the end of last year I was struggling with severe knee pain accompanied by swelling, weakness, clicking and occasional locking. Three years prior to this I had been in hospital with reactive arthritis which had predominantly affected my hips, and around 18 months ago I injured the knee while jogging. I never sought treatment for the injury and had suffered from general weakness in the knee since. The onset of the new symptoms was sudden and without any reason. The pain was considerable and at times I was struggling to walk for any period.

I had a series of scans privately (x ray, ultrasound, CT and MRI) that revealed a tumour in the knee which was initially suspected by the radiologist to be malignant. Upon seeing a public osteo-oncologist, in the diagnosis was a benign vascular haemangioma based on the MRI imaging (made in conjunction with the public hospital radiographers). I have no tests beyond the imaging. The osteo-oncologist is highly respected.

My knee has improved considerably, with only a general weakness and pain in certain positions. Occasionally, the area above the knee will have some pain which subsides within a few hours.

However, when the knee was at its worst, I began to develop occasional pain on the outside of my upper thigh. This has continued. I would characterise it as a deep aching pain which comes in waves. Its onset and disappearance is random. It is not any worse at night. The pain is not strong, but it is unpleasant - a slightly sickly pain if that makes sense.

Because the consultations with the specialist have been brief (5-10mins), I havent been able to discuss this at length. The response was simply "the scan shows the tumour is benign, maybe we can get you some physio for the weakness". Surgery has been discussed - the opinion is that the procedure would be difficult, and unless it is absolutely neccessary, should be avoided.

My question(s) are:

(1) Is this upper thigh pain anything to be concerned about? It is very different from the knee pain that I had. I am also concerned that the scans concentrated on the knee and perhaps did not extand far enough up the leg.

(2) Is arthritis a player in any of the issues, knee or thigh?

(3) Any other input would be appreciated as to what is going on.

I cured my sciatica with this natural treatment http://cure-sciatica.info

Normally, I would not answer a question like this as my expertise is generally in medication but I had severe sciatica while I was pregnant with my 3rd child (after having had twins) and I had sciatica so bad that I was finding it difficult to walk. I tried massage therapy and physical therapy and could not take medication

I went to the chiropractor and the pain was instantly relieved. My hips and lower back were out of alignment because I had carried twins the year before. On occasion a Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) can also work but they usually only work on one joint at a time - the chiropractor will do your whole back which works faster. Anyone who does not believe in chiropractors will tell you they are quacks - don't listen.

I don't necessarily believe that chiropractors can cure things like diabetes but they can definitely relieve some types of back pain especially if a pinched nerve is involved which is usually the cause of sciatica.

You might want to have an MRI scan on your back. I had back pain several years ago. It was painful on the thighs but not on the back (as you say that you don't have any back pain). I couldn't sit long, I couldn't bend forward, and couldn't squat to pick up anything on the floor. When I had an MRI, it showed I had a slipped disc on L5/S1. The pinched nerves radiated through the thigh and feet.

That thigh ache along with the pain wrapping around to the top of the knee is also a very common symptom for sciatica (pinched/compressed nerve path in the L4-L5 region of the spine) this is another angle to have looked at should you go in for more testing or treatment.

It may not be related --just a thought.
Good Luck
