In brief: Let me try to help
Although I have no definite diagnosis, you could some Motrin and apply moist heat on it , avoid squatting and strenuous activity involving the knee.
Please check it out as soon as you can. Than you.

In brief: Knee fullness
One possibility that dr. Hadied, as an orthopedic surgeon, would know very well that can cause a feeling of fullness behind the knee would be a bakers cyst.
Ibuprofen and moist heat could help that, as he said. Something that could be hard to tell from a bakers cyst, that you don't want to miss, is a blood clot. Large bakers cysts are sometimes a nuisance. Blood clots are potentially deadly.
