Hello,Well as you describe possible causes may include Baker's cyst,Ligament tear,Ossification,Degenerative arthritic changes in knee,Tendonitis.As you have radiating pain so it also compresses the passing nerve along side it.So you should see an Orthopedist for a clinical examination and undergo MRI of knee.You should take OTC Motrin.Also wear knee brace while walking.If pain is severe then visit ER for prompt management.Hope this helps.Use reply to let me know if you have further queries.Please to not forget a positive rating.
