Curious mass on the back of my leg, Any ideas

Two days ago I noticed a soft bulge on the back of my right calf. It is just below and to the left of the crease in my knee. It is painless, soft and about the size of a half of a baseball. It does seem to have increased in size in the past two days. I have no idea what it is, and no health insurance to run to the doctor to check it out. I don't really even know where to start doing my own research on the internet. Any ideas?

Firstly evaluate it if it is producing pain or not, if it is painful then it can be of an inflammatory origin, but if it is painless and also increasing in size, then it suggests to be a tumor like lesion. So it is better for you to consult a General Surgeon to safeguard your health.
