Knee Pain / MRI

Hi,

I am 31 old male, I am 5.3 tall and  my weight is 110 Pounds. I play tennis and squash from time to time.

This is my second MRI after a 1 year. The previous MRI showed that I have a Medial meniscus tear. I was so happy to see that after 1 year, the Meniscus tear disapparead from the MRI report without doing any surgery or rehab.

But this time I did the MRI on my both knees and it looks like I have some issue with my cartillage. Can you please help me understand how severe my case is and what I am supposed to do ? Surgery or just ignore it.

Right Knee report:
All normal except "There is a small contusion of the medial femoral condyle which was not present in the prior MRI study"

Left Knee report :

All normal except "There is an incidental small chondroma or cartilage rest within the medial femoral condyle""

Thank you very much for your help.

hi wajdi,
we will go step by step.

Right knee - the torn meniscus had healed , but it has created a contusion over your cartilage.

Left knee - Small possibility of dead bone or harmless bone tumor. It has to be confirmed.

Please meet a good knee surgeon.
Regards
