Swollen knee 4 weeks after injury?

I injured my knee 4 weeks ago and have a suspected meniscal tear. I have seen A&E who diagnosed MCL sprain however a sports injury clinic and my GP suspect meniscal and I am waiting to be referred to orthopaedics however my knee is still swollen. Has anyone had this problem before? From my knowledge swelling usually subsides a few days after the injury occurred.

Sometimes swelling can last for weeks after an injury. I have had the happen with two different injuries within the last 6 months.

Right okay thanks! I was confused as most of the swelling I get from injuries goes within a couple of days
