Red, hot, lump on Right side of Right knee

My knee has this lump that is hot, tender, hard, swollen and red. Its on the right side of my right knee. I havent bumped it on anything, there doesnt seem to be any "bite" marks. and the redness is spread over my knee cap and up my leg.

What is this?
Avatar_dr_m_tn
It is due to inflammed tendons, ligaments or bursa of the knee joint.
You could also have an infection without bumping on to anything, please visit a orthopaedician to assess the problem.
Take care!
