A swelling in back of your knee would most likely be a Baker's cyst. The best way to explore this is by getting an ultrasound of the leg.

Lipomas may grow bigger and cause pain and difficulty with your joint movement in this case the knee and this pain could be also referred to your hip. Since I don't know what tests or exams were done to determine this was a lipoma another thought would be a Baker's cyst which is very common. You may take anti inflammatory meds for now but probably you would need to see an Orthopedist surgeon.
