For years I have noticed a slight on and off knee pain. I am in my teen years now. The pain is more and more often and so much more painful.

In brief: Xray

It is probably in your best interest to go and see a doctor who could at least xray your knee to rule out any structural problems.

Many causes. Most likely is patellofemoral syndrome, but could be meniscus tear, ligament tear, or something else.
Check with your orthopedic surgeon for good exam & imaging.
