Grinding knee

So for a few months my right knee grinds, I can hear it. And I always have to crack it. It doesn't hurt, sometimes it might ache at night but once I crack it it's fine again. haven't seen anyone because it's not painful, doesn't swell etc. Anyone had anything like this? Thanks!

Basically it could be a lack of cartilage between the bones. This can get worse so you need to monitor it and do gentle exercise and activity only because once it's gone it doesn't come back

I have this in both knees 12 weeks now. Had scan and X-ray and bloods. They thought it was cartilage but it was a ligament injury.

You need to get a scan on Ur knee. It could be a number of things

I have this in both of my knees. An X-ray showed bursitis.
