Knee pain: knee pain in young children can have many sources. If it persists especially if there is swelling or tenderness you should have it evaluated by her pediatrician.
Dr. Philip Meadow

See a physician: Don't know enough detail.Pain without swelling as well as symmetry suggests benign process.I see children with knee pain and most commonly there is a pattellofemoral malalignment,hyper flexibility plays a role.
Dr. Richard Bensinger

See pediatrician: This symptom should not be ignored. It may signify an arthritic condition or a problem with the circulation and stability of the growth plates of the bones of the knee . A pediatrician should be consulted soon.
