I would NOT keep walking around with this worry. Get your GP to check this out and see what is going on. I don't think we can guess here what it is but he/she can palpate the back of your knee to see if there is a lymph node issue or if you strained the muscle somehow. Let us know how it goes.

I also had melanoma removed but from underneath my left foot and I sometimes feel funny behind my knee. Mainly when i’m in the shower now. It was.more prevalent a few months ago during the day now not so much but in the shower. I totally know what you mean. S if it were swollen but all seems ok from the outside. Just another worry to cope with. It’s completelyhorrible I lnow. Personally I have to cooe up with HUNDREDS of moles and new ones appearing every day.
