Why does the front of my right knee really hurt , when I kneel down on floor, yet it's fine walking, and cycling.Also pains when I apply pressure.?

PrePatellar Bursitis: You probably have a condition called pre-patellar bursitis. The front of your knee, over the knee cap, is a small fluid filled sac called the pre-patellar bursa. It helps the skin glide smoothly over the underlying knee cap. Sometimes, due to inflammation and sometimes trauma such as excessive kneeling, your pre-patellar becomes enlarged and irritated. This is painful. Treatment is usually with anti inflammatory meds such as advil, (ibuprofen) ice, and removing aggravating factors such as kneeling. Should resolve in a few weeks. If it doesn't see your sports medicine doc. Good luck! ...Read more

Yes: I would not hesitate to be seen where a thorough exam and standing X-rays of your entire lower extremities could give a lot more info. There are non surgical treatments such as physical therapy and bracing that could potentially help your symptoms, or you would have to decide if it is bad enough to consider surgery. ...Read more

Other causes could include a plica, patellar tendonitis etc. For starters avoid stairs, knee extension machines, deep knee squats, lunges etc. Try therapy, antiinflammatories, ice and sometimes a knee sleeve.
