Fall on knees, no injury, pains on touching, swelling. Any ideas?

I fell about three weeks ago on my kness or directly below my knees and I didn t think I had any injurys and I wasn t bruised, however, my small 12 lb dog when I was sitting at the kitchen table barley touch my leg in the area and it hurt so bad I cried. last night the dog did it again while laying on the couch. the pain was so bad I almost passed out.. I noticed that I have a bump or swelling about the size of a plumb but no bruising . this was three weeks ago. It doesn t hurt to walk or sit just when something touches it or puts pressure on it. Any Idea?

Thanks for query on the HCM.
It is due to soft tissue,muscle injury in side.
Swelling might be due to collection of blood inside.
It is better to go for x-ray knee (AP/LATERAL) to confirm the extant of injury.
Start nsaid with serratiopeptidase.
Local application of nsaid gel will be helpful.
Apply knee cap during movement.
Avoid any extra weight bearing,sports activity till get complete cure.
