    Hello,
    Normally sometimes when I stand up I hear a pop sound coming up from my knee. Is this something I should worry about? What is it?

    Hello,
    Do not be alarmed. This sound is usually due to a bubble trapped in the joint fluid. However, if you feel pain when it occurs and if there is inflammation, this can be an indication of tendinitis which is inflammation of a tendon called the patellar tendon and you need to seek medical attention.
