Do I have Osteochondritis Dissecans?

Patient : My leg does not hurt whatsoever but a piece of my bone came loose and is floating far away from where it came off in my knee. I got an MRI done one day ago but the doctor has not called me back. Do I have OCD?
Symptoms:  Small bone bump located on top of my knee that came from bottom of my knee, NO PAIN
Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. OCD is a disease in which articular cartilage has cracks in it. It is the cartilage whic h has damage in it. Without even seeing the MRI, I cannot decide if you have OCD or not. Please rewrite the question and send it to us again. We are here to help you.
