I would suggest you to get the x ray of the knee joint and MRi too. It will tell us if there is any injury to any internal structure like meniscus,cartilage or Ligament. If every thing is normal then you can be relaxed that it is not a serious issue. If some thng is problematic then treatment can be done accordingly.
