A few months ago, I started getting pains in my right knee. There was also a lump that couple be moved about in it. I know this sounds odd, but I decided to get it out. Its cream/white and looks like a rice crispy! I think it may be cartilage, although my doctor couldnt identify it. There was another lump in my knee but I think it disappeared under my knee cap, so I couldn't show my doctor.

I have continued to have problems with my knee - it goes through times when it aches a lot, and occasionally feels cold, and feels like it is about to give way. (Note: This was all present before my 'DIY surgery'!)

My doctors are awful and I dont really want to go back unless I have to. Any thoughts on what it could be?
