Horizontal Tear of the Posterior Horn of the Medial Menistic &Suprapatellar joint Effusion, Articular Cartilage Loss & 3MM Medial Popliteal Cyst means
Arthritis and tear. The cartilage loss is similar to saying you have degenerative arthritis setting up in your knee. The meniscus is a cartilage cushion present in your knee, there is one present medically and one lateral, and you have a tear in one as well. I would go through your MRI with an orthopedic surgeon to discuss options.
I had multiplanar mri&impresion:chondromalacia of medial trochlear cartilage. Moderate popliteal cyst with mild joint effusion. Pes anserine bursitis, prepatellar&intrapat bursitis?
Several issues. Chondromalacia means you have abnormal cartilage in the inside part of your knee where the kneecap (patella) sits. Everything else means you have fluid and/or inflammation in various places around your knee. A bursa is a sac that usually only has a little bit of fluid in it but can get inflamed and be painful. Popliteal cyst = baker cyst, which is accumulation of fluid in the back of the knee. Read more...

Chondromalacia. Chondromalacia is damage to the cartilage surfaces of joints. In the knee it's similar to the wearing away of tire treads. This can cause inflammation which can produce increased fluid in the knee (effusion). If you have minimal pain and no locking, strengthening your thigh and leg muscles is recommended. Icing and anti inflammatories and pt can be helpful. Arthroscopy is recommended with locking. Read more...
