Thanks for contacting HCM I am sorry to hear that you have injured your knee. The symptoms for contusion of the meniscus would be very similar to a torn meniscus. There would be pain and swelling with the knee. On movement the pain will be worse but with a meniscus tear there maybe an audible click or a pop to the knee on extending the knee. The best way to differentiate is with an MRI of the knee

Hello.If the meniscal torn is not large;conservative treatment(rest, bandage, local cold application and intake of antiinflammatory drugs)during four weeks may be sufficient to recover.If torn is large or conservative treatment is not effective,may be necessary surgery,increasing recovery time.I wish you good health. (If the answe has helped you,please indicate this)

Hi and thanks for the query, the knee is one of the most complex joints in the body. You might need to have a complete clinical reviw by an orthopedic surgeon. Doing an MRI might help in the evaluation process and orient further management. Thanks and kind regards. Bain LE, MD.
