In brief: Infected

Septic refers to infection.
A septic knee has active infection inside the joint. More common after knee replacement, it is quite rare in healthy adults. Signs are pain, redness, and swelling. If you were concerned about this, you should have it checked out urgently, as it can quickly lead to significant arthritis.
