Hi there,
welcome to healthcaremagic.The lump sounds like a cyst(Baker's cyst), which with time might have got infected, or simply it must be the presence of lump that is bothering you and you keep tapping it alltime.You can use nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, ice, and assisted weight bearing, in addition to the correction of underlying intra-articular disorders.And get it shown to a surgeon.
