Bump on Tibia Tuberosity from a fall on uneven sidewalk


Q: I fell down on the sidewalk about 3 weeks ago. I fell on my left knee. It left a big bump on the front of my knee on the Tibia Tuberosity (I looked it up on the internet). So there is a big boney bump on my tibia bone. It hurts on when I kneel down on both knees when at work, other than that there is no pain walking or going upstairs. So, Doctor should I go see a orthopedic doctor or will it heal itself over time, its been 3 weeks since my fall? Thank you sir.

Symptoms:  Only when I kneel. otherwise no pain.
