Knot below knee cap

I have had a hard knot below my knee cap for a year. It feels like bone to me. I have noticed the other side is the same expect dosn't stick out when I bend my knee. It gets sore when I do a lot of walking or sit with my foot rested on my knee for an extended amount of time. I first noticed this after playing a lot of once a week full court basketball. Can some one have an idea what might be my problem.

Thanks.
