Knot below knee cap

(8 discussions)

I have had a hard knot below my knee cap for a year.
It feels like bone to me.
I have noticed the other side is the same expect dosn’t stick out when I bend my knee.
It gets sore when I do a lot of walking or sit with my foot rested on my knee for an extended amount of time.
I first noticed this after playing a lot of once a week full court basketball. Can some one have an idea what might be my problem.Thanks.

    : : I have never heard of anything like that before, but sounds like it may either be some sort of bone spur or maybe a small fracture. I highly suggest that you get to your doctor to look at that and he will hopefully take an x-ray…at least for your peace of mind.: Thanks for the help. I ran across this today on the net. Osgood-Schlatter Disease. This describes my experience exactly, even the knot on the patellar tendon, except that I’m 27 yrs old. Supposedly this is commonly found in Children from 10-15. Has anyone had any experience with Osgood-Schlatter?

    glad you found out what it might be… When you said below the knee cap I thought you meant directly just under it…not an inch below….translation gets lost sometimes with this medium…are you having any pain? If not, it’s nothing to worry about. I would suggest to stretch your quads on a regular basis if you participate in physical activity.

    : Thanks. I have a large knot (50 cent piece size on the right side of the bottom of my knee. At one time…maybe 10 years ago or so I was told I had some torn cartlidge in that knee. I did’nt have much of a problem so I ignored it. Sometimes over the past years I would have some pain…not alot but some. Last week I noticed the Knot had enlarged and I am absolutlely miserable. The pain is in my knee and extends to my ankle and up to my hip. I am having trouble sleeping at night and feel terrible. I have an appointment in a month to see a physician. Nothing seems to be helping…. What is this?????

    : For the past several years, I have had really large knots on the leg bone just below the knee. They do not cause any pain unless I have to be on my knees. I have a very hard time putting weight on both my knees. I suspect they are calcium deposits but would like a proessional opinion along with a suggestion on how to correct the problem. TX Steve
