This actually sounds like a Baker's cyst....a fairly benign structural anomaly that can often occur with hyper-extension of the knee or with hyper-flexion of the knee. My philosophy though is "When in doubt, get checked out"
It's always best to see a professional in these incidences, if nothing else, it will give you peace of mind, and they may be able to prescribe an anti-inflammatory drug to ease the pain and soreness.
