Pediatrics/Pain in right Knee some times 5 years male


Dear Sir,

My son having 5 years old some time  in night it has lot of pain in right knee when it comes from playing activities like running , cycling etc.
Please advise what is the real problem.


Hi, Sanjeev,

If the knee is hot, red, or swollen, then this by definition is arthritis, and he should be seen by the doctor.  If the knee looks normal but he complains of the pain only with exercise, than this is less important and probably can be watched a bit before seeing your doctor.

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
