Lump under knee...shin bone mystery

Ever since I was about 12, I've had this strange lump under my knee. We went to see the doctor about it when I was little, and he said that my shin was just growing too fast, and that it would sort itself out in time...except that it's been over 17 years and I've still got a bump! It feels like a continuation of the shin...any ideas?
