There are several signs of a torn meniscus. The most common and obvious one is severe pain in the area of the knee, especially when moving or extending the leg. Some people may notice mild to severe swelling in the knee, stiffness or difficulty walking, and an inability to move the knee or leg through its normal range of motion. The knee may also pop, lock, or give way with movement or weight-bearing.
