where is the meniscus exactly???
« on: June 02, 2006, 04:25:32 AM »
Ok, so kinda a dumb question, I know :-) I was really wondering, when feeling around the kneecap in what area is the lateral meniscus. I've been having a lot of grinding and popping on the right side of my kneecap and that area seems more hollow than the other knee, anybody have any ideas??

Hi there,

That's not a dumb question at all! Here's a link that will take you to another section of this website. There's lots of good info on meniscii, including where they are located.

The popping and grinding could be meniscus related, but only a doctor is qualified to make an actual diagnosis.

Take care.
