Knee pain ... any advice?


Q: I was just posting on here to see if anyone knows whats up with my knee. My knee has been playing up for nearly 6 months now and it is gradually getting worse. When I run up the stairs or put any great deal of pressure on it, it seems to lock into place,get stuck together for a matter of seconds with a sharp pain, then its fine and does ache for a while. when I stand up it looks like there is a massive bulge coming out of my knee. I was thinking it could be cartilage? I wanted to get some advice before I book a doctors apointment. Anyone got any idears what it could be?
