In brief: Inflammation
Knee pain is a young patient is most commonly caused by inflammation from bursitis, tendonitis, or cartilage degeneration.
A good physical exam and possible imaging could be used to confirm the diagnosis. Less common causes of knee pain are irritated nerve roots from the lumbar spine, infection, or tumors.

There are multiple potential causes of knee pain.
A detailed exam and appropriate studies will likely show the specific diagnosis. Once the diagnosis is made, you can then discuss treatment options.
