In brief: Difficult to answer

There are many causes of a swollen knee that may heel at different rates.
A thorough exam is needed to determine the casue. Some problems, like a torn meniscus, if not detected and left alone, could cause damage to the articular cartilage of the knee and set up the onset of arthritis.
