Arthritis and Rheumatism
RA in the Knees
Can RA start in the knees of someone 35 years old?
Yes. While the peak incidence of diagnosis is typically older than the age of 35, it would not be considered rare to diagnose Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) in someone who is 35 years of age. The knees are commonly involved in RA.
