The Osgood-Schlatter disease is the painful lump below the kneecap in children or adolescents that are going through thhe growth spurs. It is seen most often in boys that participate in sports like: basketball, soccer, and in girls who practice ballet, figure skating, volleyball. During these activities the quads tendon pulls the insertion to the shin bone, and this kind of repetitive stress cause pain and swelling in the area below the kneecap. This condition tends to resolve by its own once the bones stop growing. Usually gets better without formal treatment. Then, possibly you are having a patellar tendinitis at your age.
