I searched the internet and couldn't find anything about a bump (seems swollen) above the knee cap. There is alot of info about bumps below the knee cap though...
I noticed the bump by chance when my hand was rested on my knee. There is absolutly no pain, but it does seem a little abnormal. The only thing I can think of is that I did deadlifts today. Maybe I hit it with the bar *shrug*
Anyone else ever notice such a bump on ther own knee?

Thanks for the feedback lukamar.
This morning I woke up and the swelling is down and I have a reddish spot above both of my kneecaps (exact same spot). It looks exactly like I would expect a contusion from a BB to look. Maybe I should consider it more seriously, but I really feel like I must have trying a little to hard to keep that bar close to my legs during deads yesterday. That being said I wonder if I might have been starting my knee bend a little to early during the lowering process.
Deadlifts are still new to me...
