How do you know the difference between a bruised kneecap and a fractured kneecap?

Obviously I'd rather not see a doctor in person at this time, but I banged up my knee pretty bad, I know it's bruised, just wanna make sure there's no fracture.

    I think you'd be able to tell if your knee was just banged up vs. it fractured? I'd imagine that'd be alot worse and you wouldnt be able to stand on it or do... anything with that leg. Just check after a few days once the bruising and swelling has gone down. If it continually gets worse then go to a doctor and get it checked out

    One would be bruised and the other would be fractured.
