    Your leg will probably fall off, or something.

    Are you extending your knees past your toes when you're squatting? That would put a lot of unnecessary pressure on them.

    Also, if they hurt... and you've been squatting a LONG time...it's probably a build up of scar tissue.

    I doubt it's a big deal, suck it up.
