I have a pain directly behind one knee after running - what could it be and what can I do? (i have the pain only after running.)
Meniscus tear w cyst: The fact that pain only occurs with running is significant. The considerable forces passing through the knee repetitively with each running step allow the weak spot in a potentially torn meniscus to form a juxtaposed cyst. The cyst can fill rapidly with joint fluid (akin to a bubble gum bubble) from the head of pressure in the knee. It should resolve with rest versus arthroscopic tear debridement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Good luck. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
