Thanks for writing to us.
A non painful swelling below the right knee is likely to be due to a mild local inflammation. Since you recently went for a walk, adequate rest and hot fomentation will most likely take care of the swelling. You can take a mild pain killer too.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
