I have a lump on side of knee cap doctor says its apart of my knee xray showed normal bone should I worry?

X-ray. Can't really answer without looking and examining you.
Knee lump. If the lump is to the side of your kneecap and the xrays do not show anything, the lump is likely outside of your knee joint. It could be an effusion from a meniscal tear, synovial cyst, lipoma. These do not show on xray. I would have this evaluated by a sports medicine or orthopaedic physician.
