My right knee hurts the back side really bad hurts wen I walk touch or rub it. What could the cause be?

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.
