The lateral condyle is a feature of the tibia, which is the main bone of the lower-leg. The lateral condyle is located on the lateral side of the tibia (i.e. the furthest part of the tibia from the mid-line of the body), at the top of the tibia where it forms the knee-joint with the femur.
See the page about features on bones for more about structures such as a condyle on a bone. It describes a condyle as a:
"Rounded bump or large rounded prominence. Such rounded surfaces usually fit into a fossa on another bone to form a joint."
