Be specific: Are you having any other symptoms? Instability? Swelling? History of injury or trauma? If you answer yes to any of those, then you should see your physician for a hands on exam of your knee.

See your doctor: You could have a host of issues that could cause your knee pain, could be bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, ligament issues, meniscal injury, sciatica etc. So you may want to see an orthopedic pain specialist that can tell you what is going and help you with the latest treatments or exercise therapies available.

Varies: Multiple potential causes including having a knee effusion from conditions like gout, to having a tear in a meniscus. I would not hesitate to be seen for a specific diagnosis.
