In brief: Knee pain

Depending on your duration of symptoms you can at least start off with physical therapy, a knee sleeve, and if there is arthritis present consider a course of hyaluronic acid injections.
If all fails then a discussion re: arthroscopic surgery can proceed.

In brief: Knee scope

If you are having pain, swelling and catching, then the only reasonable option would be arthroscopic knee surgery.
If your symptoms completely resolve with just anti-inflammatories with no catching symptoms, then it might be a chronic degenerative tear, and you can choose to live with it as is.
