Pop in upper quad

I was doing squats today and on my second set of 315 (moderately heavy for me currently) I went down for my first rep and when I started coming out of the bottom I felt a pop in my upper quad on the outside portion. I wouldn't really say it was painful but it definitely felt odd, I was able to finish the rep but I racked the weight immediately. I am icing it as I post this and so far I have a little limp but not much pain or tenderness.

I always thought a pop feeling meant bad news (pull or tear) but I am wondering if this could be something else. Obviously I will see a doctor if it gets worse this weekend but is it possible this was my IT band rolling over something else kind like when a tendon in my shoulder makes a popping feeling when I rotate it?

Just wanted to get some thoughts from people more knowledgeable, I will be resting, icing, and some light stretching in a day or so if there isn't much pain (and if there is I will be going to the doc). Any thoughts?

Re: Pop in upper quad

possibilities include kneecap shifting should be OK, quad partial tear get checked, meniscus, get checked, either way would get checked

Re: Pop in upper quad

I injured myself squatting and didn't find out till 3 years later that there was a tear there. Partial quad tear. It didn't hurt much, if at all when it happened, and I could run around recklessly without any pain whatsoever. Thought that is when my unrelenting and utterly untreatable knee pain and discomfort started.

You could very well have a tear and not know it. I didn't have any pain and had a tear. You apparently still have some pain.

Welcome to the world of knee injuries. Life will never be the same.

Re: Pop in upper quad

How is it knee related? I feel like it would more likely be hip than knee since it is so high.

A couple days later and it is sore but not much more than after a heavy squat day.

It's the muscle that's adjacent to the knee. Not that that means your knees will start going bad. I'd guess it would based on my lack of qualifications.
