Several issues: Chondromalacia means you have abnormal cartilage in the inside part of your knee where the kneecap (patella) sits. Everything else means you have fluid and/or inflammation in various places around your knee. A bursa is a sac that usually only has a little bit of fluid in it but can get inflamed and be painful. Popliteal cyst = baker cyst, which is accumulation of fluid in the back of the knee. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Normal structure: Its a fluid filled sack between the rotator cuff and the acromion. It resides below the acromion, hence "sub-acromial". It functions to help the rotator cuff glide smoothly below the acromial bone. When a sub acromial bone spur irritates it, you get subacromial bursitis, or impingement syndrome of the shoulder. This can be painful, and a risk factor for rotator cuff tears in the future. Its usually treated with anti-inflammatory meds, pt, and rest. If not better, a work up is warranted. ...Read more

Chondromalacia: Chondromalacia is damage to the cartilage surfaces of joints. In the knee it's similar to the wearing away of tire treads. This can cause inflammation which can produce increased fluid in the knee (effusion). If you have minimal pain and no locking, strengthening your thigh and leg muscles is recommended. Icing and anti inflammatories and pt can be helpful. Arthroscopy is recommended with locking. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
