In brief: Many possibilities
The knee is an important weight bearing joint with a complex inner and outer structure.
Your pain could be as a result of many different things. A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: trauma (fracture, tendon or ligamentous tear, arthritis), infection, and metabolic conditions.
