Your son needs to see either his doctor or make an appointment with a physiotherapist. He will need a physical examination to ascertain the problem and how to treat it.

Some people with swollen knees ice it regularly - a simple bag of peas from the freezer wrapped in a tea towel may help.

There's some useful information on the NHS Choices website here - ... ction.aspx

Please let us know how your son gets on.
