Bruise on calf, tenderness in knee. Had same bruising after an injury long back. Serious?

2 winters ago I slipped and fell on the ice and hit my L knee , almost instantly there was a bruise on my calf (on the fat pad). It eventually went away. In April I was painting my house and woke one morning and the bruise was back, same location and size but with no pain. A few weeks ago, it happened again. Tonight I went to take a step felt a kind of little pop and some tenderness right below the knee cap, I then noticed that I was starting to get the bruise again. Is this serious or maybe just a weak vein .

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I would suggest you to show it to orthopaedic surgeon and get MRI of the knee joint to make sure that there is no inside problem like meniscus injury or ligament injury. I would also like to suggest you to take Brufen for pain relief along with ice application and compression bandage.
