Go get it checked out by a ortopeadic surgeon then you don't have to wonder what's wrong. Wish you the best !!

Is it swelling? There is a suprapatellar pouch above the knee where swelling tends to gather. Mine has been swollen  since March. Get it checked tough, even swelling is there for a reason and you need to know why.

Hello


It seems that lump above your kneecap is some sort of imflammation of sleath of the patella tendon, as one time I crunched that area on my good knee.....I acutally felt it crunch and give out. I had swelling there too, as I strained the streath of the Hamstrings there, I had to keep it bandage for over a week until the swelling went down a few weeks later.


Then a few weeks later with rest the knee's has gotten better again for now.......
