In brief: Tissue.

It is a band of tissue that runs along the antero-medial aspect of your knee.
When inflammed, it can mimic a medial meniscal tear.

In brief: Plica

Usually physical therapy, ice and anti-inflammatory medicine.
Next would be a steroid injection and if all else fails after 2-3 months, surgical removal which is quick, easy and reliable.
