What on earth is this ?!
« on: October 24, 2004, 09:03:40 PM »
Hey everyone !!

Have noticed a piece hard one which I can move up and down on the lateral side of my patella on the outer edge. I can move it all way up and down but not in front up at patella. What can this be ? It is big as a pea almost but not round. Could it be a loose piece of cartilage or a piece of my patella ?
Well, I'm not worried although it hurts after I've moved it.
Anyone recognize this ?

It sounds like it could be a lot of things, but nothing good!  I suppose it could be a piece of bone, or cartilage, maybe even scar tissue.  (mine is really hard and moves a bit).  Guess it's time for a doctors visit for you :-/. Let us know when you find out!
