Knee Joint pain one leg

Have severe pain in the area around right knee, covering above and below it. There had been no jerks or accident causing it, no fever. There is a small noticeable swelling. What could it be? Checungunya? Should I see a orthopaedic or general physician

Single joint swelling and pain have different causes...since trauma is not there you can think of raised uric acid(gout) or baker cyst or early OA/RA.....
