It may be a case of arthritis, fluid in knee can happen in arthritis. Arthritis is common in old age. Or it could be something else, the patient needs to be examined to differentiate the cause. If it is due to arthritis then the fluid needs to be aspirated and some treatment has to be given for arthritis

Visit a pain clinic where the fluid can be taken out with a syringe.
