Pain and swelling below the knee
My husband is suddenly started experiencing pain below his right knee, around the top of the shin bone. The pain started after banging his knee against the table while he was trying to get up from the chair. The pain is persistent and is aggravated on movement. There's some swelling that reduces with icing. Could you help understand what it could be and what should be done?

Hello, thank you for your question. The bump may have lead to mild injury to tibial tubeosity/tibial shin with some soft tissue trauma. It will take around 3 to 4 weeks to completely heal. If pain is severe, you need to get x rays or even MRI if knee is swollen.
Next Steps
Take rest, continue with ice fomentation and take some antiinflammatory medications.
Health Tips
For further discussion, you can take teleconsultation.
