My right knee has a popping sound and it is kind a out of place

knee pops everytime i straighten it, could it be cartilage problems? I m 18 and a basketballer, so i pretty much do lotsa jumping and running movements. But i also hit the gym, where I do squats with quite a heavy weight. Recently my right knee has a popping sound and feeling whenever i straighten it. It happens everytime i straighten it, not just once or twice in a while. Moreover, sometimes i feel that my knee is kinda out of place and after a while when i start walking and stuff there s a really large pop and i feel that it kinda moves back into place I ve been reading up on it, cuz my doc s appointment is 1 month away and i can t wait for that long. Could it be a wearing of the cartilage or a meniscus tear?? could someone please help me with this? my season is coming up and it is a very important season to me, your help would be greatly appreciated thank you : ) p.s. i m not sure if it is cartilage wear, cuz i don t feel any pain (at most very very very mild when i put weight on it) so if you think it s something else please do tell me! (: THANKS! (:

It appears to be a slight muscle pull or some slight abnormality with synovial fluid that is causing this type of sound. Rest, knee cap and local application of medicated oil such as mahanarayan tail will cure it.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Your symptoms suggest that its a meniscus tear.
I am not sure if you get homoeopathic medicines there, but if you do , then
BRYONIA 30 * 6 pills * once a day for 5 days , can be taken for this condition.
