I had a surgery in feb to remove a cyst on right knee. It was non-cancerous.Today i see it starting to come back. They said it might.. But this fast?
Yes.: A baker's cyst is caused by an underlying knee problem, usually arthritis. Since the arthritis isn't removed by the surgery, the cyst can reform. Inflammation in the knee joint causes increased fluid and that pushes the joint lining out, forming, or re-forming the cyst. They can be very persistent. ...Read more
Had a bone spur removed & joint fused in my hand a year ago and it still isn't pain free. Think it was a cmc joint. Is this normal to have pain still?
See Hand surgeon: Considering your age, I am surprised that a cmc joint was fused unless you have had significant trauma or have some form of severe arthropathy. For ongoing pain, though, it would be best to see a hand surgeon, repeat x-rays, diagnose the problem and if indicated get some hand therapy to improve functionality of the hand. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You can try to have it removed again, but this time take a braod antimicrobial like augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). If to know avail, focal radiation after surgery can help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have had kidney cancer. I just got my CT scan back and they report a lesion on my right ilium bone possible a bone island. Could this be cancer?
Possibly: Bone is a relatively common site of spread of kidney cancer. The odds that this is true in your case depend on the stage and grade of your original cancer and the radiographic appearance. If the radiologist described it as a bone island that makes it less likely that it is cancer. Discussing this with your doctor is a good idea, and the need for a biopsy or other further testing can be determined. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
