Symptoms:  ts to the right side of the bone or muscle or bump that stick up right after the knee I don't know its jump knees. The pain is getting worse, I tried to hop on it and the pain was unbearable. I have no insurance or money....The pain area is about the size of a thumb. A dull pain that lingers and gets worse as I walk unless I'm taking asprin. And the area hurts very much when you touch it. I have just started running after about 5 years and I saw that I could go faster and then this occured. The pain didn't hurt at first after running but its getting worse.
