tendinitis: pain in the front of the knee that is made worse when climbing, taking stairs, or walking up an incline. bursitis: inflammation caused by repeated overuse or injury of the knee. chondromalacia patella: damaged cartilage under the kneecap. gout: arthritis caused by the buildup of uric acid.
Also question is, why does right below my knee hurt?
It can cause a painful bump below the knee, where a tendon from the kneecap connects to the shin. Overdoing exercise, and irritation at a point on the bottom of your knee called the tibial tubercle, often make this area hurt. The ache may come and go over time. It's especially common in teenage boys and girls.
