Cyst behind the knee


A Baker's cyst is classically a fluid filled cyst behind the knee. The cyst usually communicates with the knee via a small hole in the capsule or via the base of a tear in a meniscus. The knee makes fluid normally, but osteoarthritis or a mensical tear can cause an increase in fluid production, thus increasing pressure. The pathway of least resistance is out the back of the knee where a cyst forms

No


In addition to what Dr. Ekizian as said, we should be aware that the largest risk factor for osteoarthritis and inflammatory arthritis is genetic and inherited. Because of this, the Baker's cyst in turn has a large genetic or inherited component.

Fluid collection


A Baker's or "popliteal" cyst is a fluid collection in the back of the knee.It is usually secondary to arthritis and/or a meniscus tear within the knee joint. These processes irritate the knee causing excess fluid production which accumulates in the back/posterior knee. Treatment of the arthritis or mensicus tear will, in most cases, improve the Baker's cyst.

Identify cause first


A Baker's cyst is a cyst on the back the knee, usually filled with fluid from the knee joint itself. The presence of a bakers cyst is typically an indication of pathology in the knee itself. To "treat" a Baker's cyst therefore requires that the problem in the knee be treated- the cyst will then typically go away. See an Orthopaedic surgeon for further advice.
