Thanks for writing to us.
I think you had injured the tibial tuberosity, bony prominence below the knee cap. Does it hurt on extending the knee? I would suggest to consult orthopaedic doctor and get knee xrays. Sometimes excessive bone formation occur at the spot and it may give the feeling of the bump.
Please get the xrays of the knee and if possible upload it. Thanks.
