What could a squishy lump on my knee cap be ? It hurts when I'm on my knees, but not when I'm walking or standing.

Bursitis

Knee
Most likely an inflamed bursa. Typically seen if you work or kneel a great deal. Knee pads help. If you continue to kneel it can become chronic. Ice and NSAIDs can help

Bad osteo in both knees now hv a lg lump n swelling (where the little bone is on outside below knee cap) bone three times sz it should be bad pain?

Knee Effusion

Knee_pain
Sounds like a knee effusion which is fluid collection increase in the knee. If its really bad, you may need to have your knee drained. Occasionally a steroid injection may help decrease the pain and fluid collection. I would have you checked out by a sports medicine physician or orthopedic physician to make a true evaluation.

I'm a cheerleader, while I was tumbling I've seem to have over extended both my knees I have pain right underneath the knee cap kind of in the joint?

Yes

Joints
Patellofemoral pain most common injury with athletic endeavors. Also as one goes through menses there are changes in angulation across the patellofemoral joints that can lead to patello-fem pain. i recommend seeing a sports medicine doctor for therapy and brace recommendations.

Essentially you have severe osteo arthritis affecting whole spine as well multiple other joints that you have listed. See a rheumatologist. If pain is a major issue then pain management specialist could be very helpful.

Dr. Randy L. Lisch answered:

Is it possible for patella femoral syndrome to be caused by jumping on your feet without bending your knees?

Yes

The pressure of jumping without bending your knees will force the locking of the patella against the tibia bone. This will cause a shock effect to the tibia, patella and the femur leading to your pain.

Brace

The wrap-style patellar stabilization brace has been shown in studies to be the brace of choice.

Dr. Bryan L. Reuss answered:

Could knees popping out of joint, post bilateral partial knee replacements for grade 4 patella chondromalacia in Feb, cause a torn meniscus?

Depends

Knee_pain
If your kneecap is popping in and out, this is a problem with the surgery and likely will not cause a meniscus tear. But if your knee itself is subluxating/popping out (rare), this certainly could cause a meniscus tear.
