Slight pain on right inner knee

(3 discussions)

Have had knee problems before (ITB syndrome) and now use orthotics which have been brill in sorting out that problems. This pain is like a tightness on right inner knee and feels at its worse when I squat right down and tighten muscles in knees. If I press on bone on inner knee just below knee cap I can feel like a brusing pain. I am a runner and have lots of races coming up. Will I make it worse by carrying on running? On a scale of 1 – 10 of pain, it is only about 3.

Please help decipher these MRI terms!

I had a MRI done on my knee on the 21st of December. After waiting for the doc to call for several days, I finally tried to call him and left messages for two days. I decided to go get the results myself from the MRI place which I did. I still have not received a phone call from my doc, but I did talk to the nurse yesterday. She tried to explain things to me and with the report in front of me, she left out quite a bit which I asked her about. She didn’t know. She set me up with an appointment to see the doc in late Feb. That’s a long time to wait for answers. Can anyone please decipher what this report suggests?

1 Popliteal cyst visible

2. Subtle osteodema along the articular surface of patella

3. Cortical irregularity and chondral thinning

4. Transcondylar injury is present.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks again
