HI well come to HCM.
Involvement of single knee joint with swelling could be due to osteoarthritis being the
commeest cause for it.If you are obese than chances of occuring at this age are there
other wise its little early for your age.There could be other reason like pyo arthritis,
Haemoarthritis etc.Better consult ortho paedic surgeon for final conclusion. Thanks
