Hard lump on left patella that's painful when I kneel down and come back up?

It normally helps everything "slide" when you bend your knee, but can get irritated, especially if you did a lot of kneeling or caused some inflammation to start.

The list goes on and on. I recommend you visit your primary care provider for an examination.
Good luck. ...Read more
