Torn knee ligament: A torn knee ligament or meniscus will be painful, so that's the most common symptom. The knee can feel unsteady so you don't trust it to bear your weight without giving out. It can lock or catch unexpectedly if the meniscus is torn and flips over on itself. Right after it happens, your knee can swell.
Knee ligament tear: Immediate swelling, a sensation of instability/giving way, or feeling a sudden "pop" in the knee are all potential signs of a torn knee ligament.

Surgery: The locked knee is generally a meniscus tear that can be trimmed arthroscopically and a torn ligament may need to be reconstructed if it is the acl or sometimes if it is the pcl. If it is an mcl or lcl these are commonly treated without surgery.
Pain and swelling.: The knee is a common joint to injure, and if there is a serious ligament or meniscal tear there is usually a large amount of swelling. The knee is also unstable which your doctor can check for. If you have a lot of pain and swelling I would go see your doctor. If your pain is fairly mild and the knee is not swollen, using ice and resting the knee and avoiding sports until pain free is good.
