Bony bump below knee cap

I am a 45 year old female and I have a large bony hard bump below my knee cap.  I have had it for a few months now and it continues to grow.  It is tender when I touch it and my knee has begun to ache.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I would get it checked out. Could be lots of things including a tumor. When my cat had a tumor, I thought it was bone from her vertebrae at first. If it keeps growing, that sounds serious.
