Knee injury, swelling, clicking sound in knee cap, warmness in knee. Treatment?

I hit with a table my knee a few weeks ago, it idin´t hurt, but three days later I saw it swollen. It didn´t hurt, just felt the swollen, Them it went away, but I walked presing that leg as I have hurt my other foot . Now my knee is a bit swollen and on the top of the the knee cap I press and feels like a clic movment. And I can say that knee is a littla warmer than the othar. I can walk, and bend my knee, and I have no pain.

Hello.Thanks for the question.From the symptoms it seems you either have bursal effusion or bleed within bursa above knee cap.Bursa are spaces around joint meant for proper functioning of joint.I guess you need a clinical evaluation and if suggested MRI for this.Till then try rest,ice application,compression and avoid any vigorous physical activity.Hope that answers your question. Thank you.
