Brief Answer:
Chronic degenerative changes in the knee leading to cartilage damage

Detailed Answer:
Hi there.

Thanks for the query. I've reviewed the report.

It appears that there is a tear in the cartilage cushion of your knee called the medial meniscus. There are also degenerative changes seen.

Also the inner side of your knee ligament is sprained, possibly due to degeneration or trauma

This could be the cause of knee pain usually associated with Osteoarthritis of the knee.

No mention has been made about any arthritic changes in the knee. Possibly a Sports Medicine Specialist can do an arthroscopic cleanup of the joint and repair of excise your torn meniscus cartilage.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

Regards,

Dr. Aashish Raghu
