Meniscus Tear

This is a common injury of the knee. Your knee joint is cushioned by two c-shaped wedges of cartilage called the "menisci." Each individual cushion is called a "meniscus." This injury is a tear of one of these cushions. One of the initial symptoms is pain and immediate swelling of the knee. Diagnosis is made by MRI.
