Hard Lump below the knee
A hard lump has recently developed under my right knee cap a little on the inner side. It feels like a bone is protruding out. It does not pain unless i run the section very hard. I read on several websites that it could be a symptom of bone cancer or some other soft issue malignant cancer. Is that true or is it just an overgrown bone.
