Please tell me, could a torn meniscus cause a bakers cyst?

Classic Cause- Yes!

Cyst
Most Baker's cyst are in fact associated with a degenerative meniscal tear, seen often in conjunction with knee joint osteoarthritis. The angered/injured knee joint lining generates more joint fluid than normal, and the fluid finds the pathway of least resistance. tis pathway can typically course through the base of a meniscal tear or capsule weakness posteriorly resulting in a Baker's cyst.

Dr. Harry G. Zegel answered:

Can untreated bakers cyst cause a torn meniscus please clarify answer. could torn meniscus, have been in 1st mri and not have been seen due to bakers cyst, covering it somehow?

See answer

Mri
A Baker’s Cyst is a posterior medial knee protrusion of the joint between the semi-membranosus and gastrocnemius tendons. It fills with joint fluid when there is synovial irritation. A meniscal tear is a source of synovial inflammation forming the Bakers cyst – the cyst is a consequence, not a cause. One treats the meniscal tear, not the cyst.

Tear causes cyst

Cyst
The internally injured knee protects itself by increasing the lubricating fluid production. The fluid created from an injury or cartilage wear when significant, can leak out the back of the knee and take up space between the calf and hamstring muscles making the area full or swollen. This can lead to posterior pain, decreased motion. Treat internal problem to stop the fluid production.

What's a Baker Cyst?

Cyst behind the knee

Osteoarthritis
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

Dr. Allen P. Lu answered:

Is Baker cyst inherited?

No

Genetic
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.
