Swollen knee: A painless swollen knee in the absence of trauma is suggestive of inflammation, likely related to arthritis and overuse with other causes possible as well, including infectious. Crystal induced arthropaties are also relatively common, such as gout or pseudogout. Best would be to start with your GP as a knee tap will be needed in order to formulate a definitive diagnosis and your GP can coordinate.

See a doc : Knees do not swell w/o a reason. It needs to be examined if the swelling perisiots.
