Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query.Your problem is most likely a haematoma or hemarthrosis of knee.A krack or small fracture can be suspected in that case so an x ray will be needed to rule out that.You can apply ice,put elastic bandage on your knee and give rest.Consultation with an orthopedician is preffered .Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.

Thanks for writing to us.
The appearance of lump indicates an internal bleeding that can happen due to a soft tissue injury or a bone injury. You need to get an X-ray done to find out.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
