Dear Arnab,
usually if there is no swelling and pain then you need not worry of any major ligament injury of knee. The feeling of discomfort to the front of your knee might be due to inflammation of your patellar tendon which requires only rest, ice massage and simple analgesics. But if u feel instability , difficulty in climbing down stairs or locking sensation then you might require an MRI after consulting a orthopedic arthroscopy specialist.

General & Family Physician Dr. Pradeep G Naik's  Response
Dear Arnab das, welcome to hcm.
there a few tests we do for checking the possible injuries in and around the knee joints. it has to be performed by a recognised medical practitioner or an orthopaedician in a clinic/hospital.
mri will certainly be helpful in knowing the level of injury and is the best investigation for soft tissue injuries in a clinical set up equipped with the facility.
so, i kindly recommend you to take the opinion of a consultant orthopaedician before doing an mri.
thank you. happy day:-)

Radiologist, Nuclear Medicine Dr. Teik Chooi Oh's  Response
It is very common to injure the internal components of the knee such as the menisus, cartilage and ligaments. The best way to evaluate this (without resorting to keyhole surgery) is an MRI of the knee. It is a relatively straightforward examination and has no radiation.

Symptoms vary but most people have intermittent knee, especially during or after activities.

If your symptoms are persisting, you should get an MRI of the Knee.
