Meniscus: Either a scope or MRI would support your diagnosis. If it feels the same as before, you are likely correct. All the best and protect your knee.

A 22-year-old member asked:

Can benign breast cysts become cancerous?

No.: Cysts are a common condition, especially in women 35-50. The biggest problem with cysts is that it is impossible to differentiate them from tumors by physical examination or mammography; ultrasound or needle aspiration is necessary. Very rarely, breast cancers grow so fast that the center of the tumor can become liquified and resemble a cyst; either of these techniques should determine this.

Is leucorrhea associated with ovarian cysts?

Not usually: Leukorrhea is a whitish to yellowish vaginal discharge and is one of the most common gynecologic complaints. It can be a normal part of a woman's hormonal cycles, in which case it comes and goes and does not have an odor. If it persists or has a foul odor, it can signal an infection in the vaginal or cervix. Ovarian cysts are not usually related to leukorrhea.

I have bilateral ovarian cysts. With no fluid.What does this mean?

Just ovarian cysts: Every woman of reproductive age forms cysts during her cycles--the process of ovulation forms cysts. Often these resolve/shrink, but unfortunately some don't and may enlarge resulting the "ovarian cyst" many have them and may not have symptoms. Some people have large ones and may cause pain. Some twist on themselves and cause torsion. If you concerns, consult doc. Good luck.
