Smile How large would cancer of the knee have to be to appear on an X-ray?


For 8 months now I have had knee pain. At first it was mild, but i got an X-ray done and the radiologist said that everything was clear but gave me a referral for physic, which i did for 3 months in attempt to strengthen my quad muscle... my physio therapist said that it was not working and he was not sure what was wrong with my knee. It has gotten much worst in the last few months. Also, there is a bump on the back of my one which he originally named a bakers cyst but now he says that he does not think that it is because i have complete range of motion in the knee.
SO my question is: how long would cancer of my knee have to be to appear on that original X-ray.. I'm just scared that maybe it was too early and small and that it was missed, and now it has gotten larger as my knee pain has gotten worst.
