Knee pain? Community

Right knee - Lateral, offer suggestions?

Pain is very specific in location, center of joint on the lateral side and slightly behind from that location. Pain is not constant and started a few years ago as slightly aggravating but now (still not constant) when it comes on it is severe/sharp. No range of motion, swelling or bruising/discoloration issues.
Running forward aggravates it, but running side-step does not (except when I plant hard on my right foot to begin side-stepping left). Squatting/standing from seated position can cause pain. Pain flairs sometimes just when I get out of bed.  43 yr - Male - played competitive level soccer for over 30 years. Recently tennis.
No previous - serious knee injuries. Hoping to get insights from this community before paying to see an Ortho. Any sugestions?
