Hi, this is Dr Hitin Mathur from Fortis C Doc Hospital, New Delhi. Welcome to Practo. As far as the pain and the noise in the knee is concerned, it could be coming from the meniscus or a hypertrophied plica in your knee. A good clinical examination is a prerequisite to find the cause of the same. You may need to undergo some imaging and blood tests as well depending on the condition of the knee.
