In brief: Trauma=meniscal tear
Usually trauma to the knee causes meniscal tears (cartilage tears) which can degenerate over time causing symptoms of pain, swelling, locking, and popping.
An MRI is a good test to diagnose a meniscal tear and an orthopedic consult may be needed. Bone tumors of the femur or tibia are very rare.
