If I have constant pain in my lower outside of my knee and a little swelling, is this something I should have a specialis look at?

In brief: Ligament issue

You should first get an elastic knee brace to wear to help reduce the strain on your knee joint.
If this doesn't help after a few days, you should call your doctor.

In brief: Not necessarily

There are too many possible causes.
First get into a good doctor and see what needs done. If at that time a consult with an orthopedist is needed it can be done.
