You should go have this checked by the doc. Have you ever been diagnosed with RA? Have you tried alternating warm and cold compresses? Did you do anything to injure your knee?

SORRY about YOUR KNEE.  MINE ALWAYS GETS INFLAMED BEFORE I FLARE.  SOMETIMES ON PRED IT EVEN STAYS INFLAMED.

MY DOC SAID THE INFLAMATION IS PART OF THE UC DISEASE.

GOOD LUCK
