Patellofemoral pain: You most likely have a condition called patellofemoral pain syndrome. It is due to the patella is not tracking properly on the trochlea. This can be due to a variety of causes such as hip flexor muscle weakness, tight it band etc. A program of physical therapy can usually solve this.

Can be too active.: If you exercise a lot, like bike riding, this can cause pain in your thighs and legs. It would explain your knee pain also. A lot of bending over, like during housework or gardening, can do it too. I would say take it easy for a few days, and if your pain persists, see your doctor to see if there is some other cause. Some simple painkillers, like Aspirin or tylemol, or advil (ibuprofen) can also help. ...Read more

Doubtful: Cancer is statistically extremely unlikely. Much more likely at your age would be conditions such as chondromalacia (wear and tear of the kneecap cartilage) or possibly cartilage wear and tear within the knee joint itself. I would recommend seeing a physician for evaluation since symptoms have been present for a month. ...Read more
