Cyst full of fluids: A baker's cyst is a fluid-filled cyst that causes a bulge and a feeling of tightness behind your knee.

Depends: Least likely cause is the bakers cyst as these are usually asymptomatic. The only way that a varicose vein could be felt as a lump is if it has clotted off in which case it usually would also be very painful. Therefore this could be a thrombosed varicose vein. Possibility of tumor can not be discounted as it is included in the differential. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When that tendon ruptures (or breaks), it almost always needs to be surgically repaired. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Back pain: The answer depends on the anatomical reason for your discomfort. Sciatica in your age group is usually a phenomenon which occurs secondary to a small disk herniation. More often than not, supportive treatment in the form of physical therapy and a short course or pain medication will work but you have to be patient :) In short, yes walking and even stretching are good. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Synovial cyst and fluid collection around left knee in mri. Feels likes it can't bear weight, is hot and back of knee is swollen. Could be ra?
While it could be,: It does not mean it is. There are numerous other things this could be, anywhere from a bakers cyst that's irritated, an acute injury, or an infected joint. Speak to the physician who ordered the MRI and ask about a simple blood test to rule out RA (most likely) and then workout an accurate treatment plan. If that is your only, and first "hot" joint, then don't worry, just have lab checked. ...Read more
Pain r leg proximal tibia n ankle. Doc says ligament instability what is that? Oteoarthritis in both knees connected?
Related...yes: Ligaments connect bone to bone. Ligament instability means that the supporting structures are not holding the joint in alignment for efficient motion. The knee, leg (tibia) and ankle are all connected and if one component is weak, the others will compensate. Osteoarthritis is basically a wear and tear of the joint. If the joint is not stable, the bones rub and become irritated and inflamed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Have Medial Meniscus tear w/ cyst wearing hinged knee brace but calf is very painful What should I do?
How helpful is brace: If the brace is the source of the calf pain, but helps the knee, then an adjustment to the brace (size, fit, etc.) could be considered. Alternatively, a new brace could be utilized. Personally, I don't routinely use braces for meniscal tears unless there is a ligament tear as well or associated arthritis with a misaligned knee. Seek additional help if the brace is not the cause of the calf pain. ...Read more
