    I'm not sure of the differences between the two but I have either preachers knee or housewifes knee. Makes since considering my background (spent a lot of time in the day kneeling on the floor, 2-3 hours at min). Basically: do I need to get it checked by a GP or not? It's painful but only when I kneel on it. If it'll go away by itself I am happy to leave it but I don't want complications or anything. For now it's painful and a bit ugly (lumpy thing sticking out of my knee, looks a bit disturbing).

    Thanks
