Left Knee Tumor Symptoms
What are the symptoms of having a medial extrusion in the left knee? Would this be a mensicus tear? Does this require surgery? Pain on the medial side
Prob Meniscus: Although the phrase "medial extrusion" is an unusual description of a condition of the knee, it sounds as if you are dealing with a medial meniscus tear with instability of the meniscus.

Could early arthritis cause pain in the middle of my left knee when i kneel it.I have no other symptoms such as swelling, hot sensation or stiffness?
Chondromalacia: Early arthritis could cause pain with kneeling, especially if the cartilage on the undersurface of the kneecap (patella) is damaged. This is called chondromalacia. Some people call this early arthritis but it does not necessarily progress to arthritis (which is the total erosion of the cartilage).

Especially since most people almost never know what stung them. It is important, though, to wait 6 weeks after this sting for testing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
