Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have what sounds like Chondromalacia patella which in itself is not a major problem and commonly seen in young adults who are still growing. You will need to do a regular exercise of the knee and stretches of the hamstrings and most problems resolve once you stop growing. No need to get tensed up.

For more information consult an orthopaedician and traumatologist online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/orthopaedician-and-traumatologist
