Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
It is very difficult to comment without seeing x ray of the knee joint about what really happening in side knee. I would recommend you to show it to a orthopaedic surgeon also though I can assure you that there is not tear for sure. You can take brufen tablet for pain relief.
