My right knee swelled up 4 weeks ago. I was diagnosed with bakers cyst. Is it possible for this to make my whole body hurt?
Need more informatio: The swelling of the knee was large enough to push some of the fluid out of the back of the knee. This is what we call a Bakers cyst. It is an extension of the fluid from the knee to the Bakers cyst in the back of the knee. What you need to to know why the knee swelled.

Had left medial menisectomy surgery...... Now in pain in middle of knee front and back. Also had bakers cyst. What is causing pain in both area?
Varies: There are several possibilities. Have you had recent surgery? It could represent a recurrent tear in thermos is or recurrence in the cyst. It is also pretty common in patients with those problems to have some degree of chondromalacia/arthritis that may be causing symptoms. I would not hesitate to be seen and evaluated fully. ...Read more
What cause pain and pressure in back of the knee? There is no Bakers cyst. I have been having painful popping and locking? What could this be. Help
Seek help: Popping and locking can be worrisome symptoms. Structures in the back of the knee include your hamstring tendons and PCL, but they’re certainly not limited to this. I’d strongly suggest you get examined by a doctor as leaving a potentially serious injury may cause structural damage in the long run (no pun intended). ...Read more

I have a Bakers cyst outside my knee joint and I've been told it will not be removed because it could cause more damage, I've also been told I can go b?
Second opinion: Bakers cysts can definitely be removed and it is not uncommon to have to do so. The bigger question is are you having enough trouble with it to have it removed. They are also sometimes associated with an internal derangement in the knee and so an MRI can provide more information. If you want it removed and the surgeon is unwilling, consider a second opinion. ...Read more
Bakers cyst ruined my knee. Now this bulging disk. Could these problems be a new thing or maybe getting old?
Other way around.: A baker's cyst is a large synovial pouch that forms in the posterior (back) portion of the knee; this occurs because there is already some damage in the knee itself (osteoarthritis, meniscus or ligament tear, trauma). You may not be old, but your knee is. The cysts themselves can be drained or injected with cortisone & may resolve, but underlying destruction of knee joint is not reversible. ...Read more
I have a baker's cyst in my left leg and my knee is hurting why is that? And how do I get rid of the bakers cyst?
Meniscus: Bakers cyst are usually caused by fluid from the knee "leaking" out the back of the knee through a weak spot in the lining of the joint. This weak spot is usually caused by a tear in the meniscus. I would recommend a visit to an orthopedist and possibly an MRI to evaluate that meniscus as with your young age a repair of any tears would be best treatment. ...Read more
I have a cyst on the side of my knee replacement it's not a bakers cyst we believe its synovial fluid why would this happen?

I need help what could be wrong in back of my right knee? I was Ruled out for a bakers cyst or a blood clot. Which is negative?
Tendonitis: Other causes of pain in the back of the knee can come from overuse syndromes. Hamstring tendonitis can be a cause and probably the most common cause. Tendonitis of the calf, popliteus muscle injury or strain, and posterior cruciate ligament injury are also possible causes. Referred nerve pain from the lower back can also cause posterior knee area. Get a good exam and possible MRI may be needed. ...Read more

Painful swelling behind knee. Ultrasound did not detect a bakers cyst or anything else, but its painful and tender, especially in the surrounding area?
Still could be Baker: If it is painful it needs further evaluation. A bakers cyst should easily be seen by ultrasound but sometime the content of the cyst, tissue, synovium, blood, can obscure its deliniation. If x-rays have been ok you may need an MRI but need to consider vascular structures both vein or artery, the posterior knee, cartilage, tumors, etc these are the things to look for. ...Read more

Severe pain on right side of knee. PCP did X-ray, said he saw bakers cyst. Referred to ortho to see if cartilage/meniscus damage. Read can't be on xra?
I have a ruptured bakers cyst in my left knee. My ortho says it will take about 8weeks for the fluid to reabsorb. Will Lasix (furosemide) speed this process up?
Lasix (furosemide)?: Lasix (furosemide) of Furosemide helps your body excrete fluid from the kidneys (it's a loop diuretic) and works best when you have extra fluid in the legs (peripheral edema), so I'm not sure if it'll help with the baker's cyst fluid since it's more of a localized fluid that will go away with time and compression as well as surgical removal. ...Read more
