Torn miniscus, bursa: The more common causes of your symptoms are petallar bursitis (the patellar bursa becomes swollen, irritated and painful), and a meniscal tear (tearing of the cartilage disc between the femur and the tib/fib complex. If it persists for more than a few days, you need to see an orthopedist for an eval and knee MRI. In the meantime, an adjustable brace would not hurt, and would give support. ...Read more
Still having knee pain, pain is around a constant 7 and swelling is still present could I need surgery to fix the ligament if torn?
Always "could": Problem is it needs examined by Orthopedic surgeon to make best plan for healing and rehab, even if not needing surgery--may need immobilized to reduce pain/swelling and facilitate healing, or may need focused physical therapy.

What can be done for knee pain I think is from the lateral collateral ligament associated with joint grinding?
Unlikely: The lateral (or fibular) collateral ligament does not typically cause pain. An injury to the fcl can cause instability in the knee. Unlike the mcl, when it is injured, it does not heal as readily and actually doesn't hurt as much to touch it. Grinding could be instability but usually occurs from a mechanical problem inside the knee. See an orthopaedic surgeon for an evaluation. ...Read more

Constant knee pain seems lateral. Collateral ligament is tight & painful and it is also causing the joint to grind. What could be causing this?
Knee Nightmare: Pain about the knee can be due to many reasons. Medial pain can occur due to ligament, meniscal or bursal injury. Similarly, lateral pain can occur for these reasons but less so for meniscal injury as it is a distinct structure apart from the collateral ligament. A common, but often overlooked, condition is iliotibial band syndrome that can cause pain anywhere from the hip to the lateral knee. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
