For 1month knee pain and can spread to leg.Aches and hard to walk up and down stairs.Can be quiet dull or sharp.I'm not athletic 20 y/o.Cancer?Worried
Doubtful: Cancer is statistically extremely unlikely. Much more likely at your age would be conditions such as chondromalacia (wear and tear of the kneecap cartilage) or possibly cartilage wear and tear within the knee joint itself. I would recommend seeing a physician for evaluation since symptoms have been present for a month. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Knee pain. No swelling or redness. Feels like bones crunching together when I walk up or down stairs.
