Lump behind knee with calf muscle pain

Age 19, normal physical, somewhat inactive. Recently I ve been having calf muscle pain and strain as well as shin splints in the region between my knee and my and my ankle. Recently I ve developed a soft, golf-ball sized lump behind knee on the same leg. Is this a lymph node disturbance? It is making my leg tingle a bit, so I thought maybe it was disrupting my nerves as well. I only notice it when my leg is out straight.
