Patient :I am 18 and have a small tender lump on the outside of my left knee, it causes quite a lot of pain especially during the night and can occasionally drop me to the floor. I am quite sporty however this seems to be affecting me as I cannot do the usual routine as I have shooting pains and achiness doing so. Any reason or explanation as to why the lump is there or what it is? Thank You.
