Having pain after a knee injury

I fell on my left knee hard at work and it hit a metal floor. If I touch it in a certain spot with only a pound or two of pressure it is extremely painful, and this is 3 years after the original accident. I can walk all day or ride a bike for miles, it only hurts when something taps it or I put my weight on it, but very annoying. I am 41, 5 8. There is nothing visually wrong, nor was there ever any color change, like a bruise. I can feel something that feels almost like a rubber band that will move a little.

thanks for query,
it is possible that now Osteoartheritis changes took place at the joint giving you this problem.
O.a. changes take place early on accident parts.
Go for X ray and find out the cause.
ok and bye.
