Yes, knee pain can come from the lower leg, and specifically the area that you are describing. The short time I have been practicing, pain and swelling in the area you are describing is typically a fibula that is out of place. The fibula is kind of quirky in that is non wieght bearing and is limited to a barely measurable amount of movement, but if it is out of place and is not allowed to move like it needs to it can cause alot of problems. It is not something that could be diagnosed over a message board, and if it is the case, it is not something you can fix yourself so I would get it checked out by a PT and it should be a pretty quick fix.
