Well, 4 weeks of training in and I've managed to encounter a new problem. I'm able to push faster and harder on the descents and stay out of the saddle longer while climbing and descending.

However, after long rides (road and mtb) I get some swelling in my left knee. It is the size of half a ping-pong ball and on the outer knee by where the tibial plateau is. The swelling is painless, but it takes a good 2-3 days of rest and elevation to recede. Also, it restricts my knee's movement. Once it recedes there's a small amount of soreness in the area around the knee, but nothing serious.

Tried to see the doctor about it, but the first available appointment is in 2 weeks' time. Any opinions?

Hmm. How about, make the lump re-appear, then go down to A&E and have a word with them.
