    I've got a small (less than a cm) round lump kind of thing under the skin sort of "sitting" on my knee cap. It's not painful, hasn't changed shape/size at all, doesn't feel like it's attached to anything and hasn't caused me any problems.

    Any idea what it could be?

    I'll get it checked out if anything changes, but it's been there a while and hasn't caused a problem... I'd just like to know what it might be!

    As the above poster said, it sounds like osgood schlatters disease. Usually it doesn't pose much of a problem, but in some extreme cases it can be pretty painful so go and see your doctor :yep:

    It doesn't really sound like the same thing Just googled it and the symptoms don't really match. Mine isn't painful and it is right on the centre of the knee cap, not below.

    Is it tendinitis or calcium deposits from the ligaments or tendon?

    It sounds nothing like Osgood Schlatters.

    Much more likely to be a seb cyst.

    Ignore posters 2,3 and 4.

    If you are worried see your GP. Otherwise wait and see if it goes.

    Everyone's been saying Osgood, but I don't think it is, maybe it's a build up of fluid? I'd just recommend going getting it check out, might be a cyst . Osgood is generally 'below' the knee cap as far as I'm aware. whereas you said it's 'on' your knee and I'd say Osgood is most definately painful. :|
