Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at HCM!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

The report indicates that there is small fluid filled cyst (small oval structure) at the lateral meniscus (sort of a shock absorber of the knee joint) with a suspected tear of the meniscus.
These may indicate degenerative changes. Also there are small lymph nodes in the popliteal fossa.(knee fold). Nodes may appear enlarged in infection.

Please consult your ortho specialist and be guided.

I hope you are fully satisfied with the guidance I gave.
I would be glad to answer any further queries. May I request you to rate your experience here before you close.
Thank you and Good luck!
