Thank you for the information.

There can be a few possibilities.

It can be due to inflammation of a bursa or cyst commonly Baker's at the back of the knee.

Arthritis is a common cause of it.

Other possibility is tendon injuries, pinched nerve, clot or DVT.

I would advise to get an examination by doctor.

Doctor can then advise about scan, blood tests etc.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.
