Baker's cyst: Arises from the back of the knee or the side and goes to the back of the knee. Even if drained it can recur. It can be treated with prolotherapy by aspirating and then injecting the neck of the cyst with proliferant. Visit www.Getprolo.Com or www.Aaomed.Org for information and a doctor.
