Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the bump. Possibilities that may need to be considered include enlarged bursa, fractures/ loose bodies, bony/ cartilaginous, outgrowths, growths from any of the soft tissues etc. Knee pain could be caused due to patellar dislocation, chondromalacia, fractures, injuries to the internal ligaments/ menisci, infections/ inflammations, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, cyst formation, iliotibial band syndrome, osgood-schlatter disease, bone growths/ tumours, nerve injuries/ impingement etc. I would suggest considering an evaluation by a sports medicine specialist or an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
