Bump on left knee, soft, painless, filled with fluid. History of strokes. Treatment?

ok I had a stroke in 2009 march, so I guess you could say Im stroke ridden, last night I was washing dishes when I accidentally dropped a spoon under the sink, so to get it I got on my knees and this morning I had a bump on my left knee and its soft, painless, and it looks as if it retains liquid, do you think it ll go down in time or could it be more serious than that
