Painfull knees

I have been experiencing very stiff/painfull knees with the muscles above the knees being quite swollen. The swelling is not painfull when touched or pressed and is soft. I cannot bend my knees properly and cannot reach my feet without considerable pain. I also find it extremely difficult to walk up or down stairs. What could it be as a result of, and what should I do to treat it?
