Is osgood schlatter disease bad?

I think I might have this disease. It's a hard lump under the knee cap, and it always hurts I looked up pictures and they look just like mine. I'm 20 and I got the lump when I was 15. It's severe pain, sometimes it won't, but most of the time it bothers me.. Is there any cures? Most people are saying I need surgery and some people say that it will never heal. It said that's it's suppose to heal in a couple weeks on its own but I've had this for5 years .

Don't listen to the people that say it will never heal. Maybe, it will never heal if you don't see a doctor. Talk with your doctor and ask what she can do. And P.S. go steelers! I love that team! Good luck! :D

No it is not good...it hurts like hell. Mine finally healed up at around age 25. The only clue that I ever had it is the bump of bone below the knee cap. Avoid things that might aggravate it. Hang in there and tough it out
