quick question
« on: March 19, 2003, 08:58:20 AM »
Hi I just have a quick question. I have a pointy lump on top of my patella it is on the medial side close to the edge. It  feels like  really hard little pebble. Any idea what it could be?

Hey Sharid

I think only an xray or an exam by an OS could tell you for sure...

Could your patella be tilted? Maybe it's just the edge of your kneecap...

Could be an osteophyte (little bony outgrowth).
