Knot kinda below my knee cap

Im 19 yrs old and one day in school i got into a fight. what happened was when the teachers stopped it they put their weight all on me and i went down on one knee really hard. now this is the strange part. its been over a year now and the pain right below the kneecap feels like a big bruise or knot is there and i have to crawl on my knees carefully ifi want to with just the top of my knee. i run a lot do squats im an amatuer bodybuilder if you will cuz i train a lot mainly for the military but here is the other strange thing. whenever i do these exercise there is no pain my knee feels perfectly fine. only whem i put pressure on it. no popping or anything or grinding.

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the discomfort in your case. If there are no issues moving the knee and the discomfort is not located around the joint itself, it may not be anything grave. Possibilities that may need to be looked into include bone contusions, periostitis, neuromuscular issues etc. I would suggest getting this examined either a primary care physician or an orthopedician/ sports medicine specialist, for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
