Dr. Bennett Machanic answered

Specializes in Neurology

Synovial cysts are congenital variations of no significance unless they substantially enlarge, and in your case, seem a co-incidental finding of little relevance. Discuss in more detail with your doctor and have him/her demonstrate the findings on the films to provide further reassurance.
