In brief: Just the knee numb?

Nerves to the knee basically broken down into those that come from behind the knee (articular branches of the tibial and obterator nerves) and those that come from the front (articular branches of femoral, common peroneal and saphenous nerves).
Would need full history and good exam to try and determine where the issue might be. List off possible causes long. Best to see your doctor. best of luck
