Brief Answer:
osteochondritis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I read throughout
I understood your symptoms and viewed the picture the exact location.
I find the symptoms most consistent with osteochondritis where the cartilage in the joint involved.
A knee brace would definitely help now. You should also take ibuprofen 400mg Thrice a day for three days.
Avoid all activities, positions of knee that cause the pain.
If this doesn't help you should get x-ray of the joint to look for bursitis near the joint.
