Doctor :   Hello Thank you for posting your query on ATD. I have gone through your query and understand your concern. It seems that you are having some meniscus injury or pathology in your right knee. You need MRI of your Right knee to see it. Quadriceps exercises may be useful. You can take analgesics such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Hope your query get answered. Wishing you a good health. Take care.
