Left knee hurts to bend but not to stand on. Applying pressure to the very left, lower side of knee is painful but nowhere else. Is it atorn meniscus?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Ligament strain

More likely a sprain of the lateral ligament.
Rest with knee brace for a week & consult a physician if no improvement.
