In brief: Many possibilities

There are many possible causes to knee pain.
They can include a fracture, ligament tear or strain, cartilage tear or inflammation, joint arthritis, cyst within the knee (baker's cyst), excess fluid in the joint, or other causes. Best to see your family doctor or orthopedist to help make the diagnosis.

In brief: Knee pain

Any injury. Is it acute or gradual? Swelling, tenderness, reddness.
.Etc.. Would need x ray and good exam.

In brief: Many possibilities

Your pain could be as a result of many different things.
A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: soft tissue mass such as cyst, trauma (fracture, tendon or ligamentous tear, arthritis), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormalities.
