In brief: Needs evaluation
Sharp pains in the knee joint can be benign or may indicate something more serious like a torn meniscus (cartilage).
This is not something you can diagnose on your own. Your doctor can find the answer by doing a history and detailed exam, and may order additional tests such as an MRI or x-rays.
