Arthritis? Not all arthritis is painful at 1st. The amount of fluid often corresponds with the amount of activity the he's been doing--more significant activities cause more swelling. Also gout or pseudogout - Uric acid crystals around the knee. My knee swell up when I cheat on my girlfriend. :-)

It could be from something as small as a bruise (even if he didn't remember hitting himself) to a blood cloth. My advice is to have him take a physical with a doctor.

There are a number of possibilities. If he does a lot of lifting/walking/etc, that can put pressure on the knees and cause swelling. Problems with the lymphatic system and various infections and arthritic conditions can also cause it. If things don't improve in a couple of days, see a doctor.

It's possible he could have been bitten by a bug or spider. The doctor will investigate and provide medical support.
