my knee has been hurting since saturday.I am experiencing knee pain and my knee pops when i bend it. could it be a torn meniscus?
Possibly: However, most 25-year olds that have meniscal tears have a history of trauma- a sports injury, a twist, a fall, etc. Abnormal tracking of the kneecap, an articular cartilage problem (this type covers bone), an enlarged plica are possibilities.
