Hi, over the weekend I felt a knotty lump manifest itself basically round the back of my knee (I only say biceps femoris from a handy picture on the internet which seems to point to where it feels like it is). Is this something I should generally be worried about, or should it untangle itself over a short period of time with regular walking and massage? For reference, I run a couple of 4 mile sessions on a treadmill per week, plus a parkrun at the weekend.

Sorry no-one's come back to you on this. If you're worried about it maybe a visit to the doc would help put your mind at rest or find a good physio who should be able to help you. Good luck.

Thanks, alpenrose. It appears to have disappeared as randomly as it appeared.
