Swelling and pain in the knee after twisting, difficulty in straightening. Do I have a ligament tear?

the other day i was on a moving cart, and i quick jumped to get off but my foot was turned the opposite direction and i bent my knee inward. I felt a pop and i couldn t move my knee for a few minuets because it felt like i broke it. i got up walked a little bit and it started to feel better but still hurt. Its now been the 3rd day and its still swelled up a bit, and it hurts to bend and straighten it. it feels like most of the pain is in the inner knee on the bone, but it doesn t feel like i did something to my bone, it feels like i did something to a muscle or ligament . what could i have popped? and should i go see a doctor?

Hi, Thanks for query.
It seems that you might have ligament tear or some muscle or cartilage damage due to jumped from the cart giving twisting injury to your knee joint.
Consult orthopedic surgeon and get investigations done.
Give complete rest to the local part.
Ok and bye.
