In brief: Swelling Causes

Swelling behind the knee could be a strain or ligament injury.
It could be phlebitis. It could also be a cyst called a Baker's cyst. The best course would be to see your family doctor, orthopedist or podiatrist for evaluation. A physical exam and possibly X-rays or an MRI can answer your questions.
