All about my bothersome left knee.

Hi all.

I accidentally slipped on our toilet room somewhere on the last week of June this year where I got straddled and my left leg hit the door. I got slight pain on my back but it was gone not a long time afterward; also, my right hand got a bit wounded but then again, it's healed already - just a little unclear scar left.

However... a few days after the accident, my dad asked me "does that lump behind your knee hurt?" - and the answer was "what? No it's not. Which lump?", because otherwise, I would've been recognized it before him. (The lump isn't centered but more to the left.) Today if you look at my leg, you will immediately spot that lump. Hopefully it won't get anymore bigger!

If that's Baker's cyst, what could possibly the underlying cause(s)?
If no, then what could the lump be?

Last but not least, the top-left side of the thigh part just above that knee has been swollen too... it's a bit painful but only if I push it. The lump itself isn't painful, but when I push it, I feel painful - where? I'm not sure. And one more, that lump's "base" is locking my knee and it's painful especially after (or sometimes while) kneeling.

Anyone please advise me!
I'd be very greatful if anybody experienced the same issues can share his/her story.

Thanks.
