Probable Bruise: Simply falling on the knee and striking it on the ground, without a twist is more likely to cause a superficial contusion ( bruise) than significant internal injury. If you are bearing weight well with point tenderness over the bump, continue icing several times a day for the next day or two. If there is increasing pain swelling or difficulty walking , then i would have it seen and possibly xrayed. ...Read more

One does not have: To see something to itch...For example (not implying this is what you have) if one ever works with insulation and doesn't wear proper clothing they get fiberglass on their skin - it itches intensely but one doesn't see anything....You can try showering and applying soap and water to the region and then applying an over the counter Hydrocortisone cream.

Doctor can evaluate: A teen with some pain behind the knee, and a weird-feeling "something" there, may have inflammation there (called a baker cyst).
