got this thing behind my.knee....


Am not sure if this post is ok in this section.

But I am consider obese.
anyway I have this veiny bulge about 2 inches below my knee in the back. Its gross :/
its purple and puffed up maybe the size of a quarter.

Ive had it for a while. But the thing is I notice its not always that bad. Most of the time its not bulging you can see a purplish mark there but it seems to come around after a long day of standing or walking.
my leg below this seems to hurt too when its.puffy but by morning its gone again.

I see my doctor in a couple of weeks and plan to ask about it but just looking foe some ideas. I looked on the net and haven't really found anything that fits it. My husband says its a pinched vein but I never even heard of that.

My health is.good. no high bp. No high cholesterol. I walk a mile a day and bike 30 mins daily.
