Knee swelling no pain just a large watery lump?

YOU COULD HAVE SOMTHING that some people refer to as "plumbers knee". If you spend a good part of your day kneeling down for your job, or otherwise, this will happen. I help a young man with cerebral palsy who spends a lot of time crawling on his hands and knees to access something. He had a large pocket of "water" develop on the front of his knee. It's the bodies response to repeated use of the knee on a hared surface, in order to protect the kneecap, it covers it in "water". Many times there is no pain with this condition. See a healthcare professional or your family doctor or local clinic. They can drain the fluid from your knee and give you ideas on how to stay off the knee. Good Luck! <<<ADR>>>
