About a month ago, I fell on my knee and it swelled, and bruised. It seems worse. It has become stiff and sore. Could this be contusion?

In brief: Knee swelling

Swelling and bruising are signs of bleeding and damage to the tissues under your skin.
If the symptoms have worsened after a month of rest, consider getting in to seeing your primary care doctor for a formal evaluation. It may be a bad contusion, but if its getting worse it could be a fracture and a simple xray can point that out.
