In brief: Possible bakers cyst

As well as nerve entrapment.

In brief: Get it checked!!!

Get examined because several there are conditions such as a baker's cyst that can present themselves in the back of the knee and pinch a nerve to cause tingling in the toes.
You also have to rule out a more serious clot (dvt). Examination and tests such as an ultrasound (doppler) would be used to diagnose.

In brief: Bakers Cyst

This is a growth behind the knee that puts pressure on the nerve and blood vessels.
See an orthopedic surgeon.
