It could be a cyst,: abscess,fatty or scar tissue etc. See your Dr if it gets bigger or for any concern.Take care! http://www.rightdiagnosis.com/symptoms/knee_lump/causes.htm

Lump: It sounds like a superficial benign lesion like a cyst, but if it persists and because it's uncomfortable when kneeling, have it evaluated by a physician.
