Hard bony lump below knee
I am a 45 year old female and I have a fairly good sized hard bony lump below my knee cap.  I have had it for 3 months and it is now starting to become tender when i touch it.  I haven't had any injuries.  Any ideas of what it could be?

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the lump. Possibilities that may need to be considered include outgrowths from the bone, fractures, cysts, growths from the soft tissue structures etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
