Knee injury

I am 15, in a soccer game my knee collided with another girl's knee and since then I have had intense pain around the knee cap. Its hurts a moderate, bearable amount when walking around but when standing up from sitting or kneeling or when I bend the knee I feel sharp intense pain around the knee cap. Does anyone have any idea of whether this is a serious injury and if so what it could be or if should I not worry?

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to say. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or an orthopedician/ sports medicine specialist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management, if required. Meanwhile you may try resting the knee. Ice-packs and NSAIDS may help relieve some discomfort.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
