One of the most common ways to determine a symptomatic meniscus tear is to have the patient perform a deep squat or flex their knee into maximal flexion. Pain in the back of the knee is a meniscus tear until proven otherwise. Other sources of pain can include a Baker's cyst, cruciate ligament ganglion cyst, pigmented villonodular synovitis, lipoma arborescens, or other pathology.
