A 16-year-old male asked:
Doctor said i tore my mcl, but i've been able to walk with my brace on, and a couple of weeks ago my leg got swollen and stiff is it my meniscus?

See you doctor: The knee is a very complicated thing. While your meniscus could be the cause of pain, there are several other possibilities. It too difficult to tell by your description.

Possible: Mri will give information to diagnose. Swelling and stiffness is not specific for one particular injury.
