    I think I have phlebitis. Should I be worried?

    For the past several months I've had what looks like a swollen vein behind my left leg running several inches down to my knee. There's also what looks like a large bruise behind the knee. The pain is a stabbing or sometimes a burning sensation. I've noticed that when I sit down the swelling, bruise and pain go away, so it's only when I stand that I have any symptoms. I'm thinking it's phlebitis but based on what I've read online that's only supposed to last for a few weeks and this has been going on since January.
