In brief: Unlikely
Pain from meniscal tear usually experienced along joint below kneecap along inner or outer aspect of knee.
Pain may also be experienced in back of knee. Symptoms frequently experienced with activity (twisting, pivoting, squatting). Pain above kneecap more likely originates from kneecap itself or groove that it runs in.
