In brief: Pain behind knee
When the focal area of knee pain is in the back (called the "poplieteal fossa"), one disorder to suspect is a large cyst behind the knee joint, which is known as a baker's cyst.
An ultrasound test can be used to confirm this. Treatment is either wait and watch or surgical removal of the cyst.
