Knee injury, large swollen spot below kneecap, can stand, move around normally. Treatment?

I hurt my knee while wrestling with a friend. It s was very painful on the inside of my jeans, like a rug burn . When I took my jeans off to look for scrapes, I found a very large swollen spot on the inside part of my left knee, slightly below the knee cap. It doesn t hurt much other than the rug burning sensation, but the swelling is very concentrated in that one spot; looks very strange to me. I can stand, walk and move around normally.

Thanks for posting your query.

It might be soft tissue injury or infrapatellar bursitis.

Examination of swelling and knee is necessary to reach the diagnosis.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination and treatment plan according to that.
