Try low impact: Exercises such as swimming. Consult ortho surgeon also to see how much impact your knee could take.
Depends: Ganglion cysts (also known as Baker's Cysts) are synovial cysts of the knee joint. In most cases they are treated conservatively. In cases where they are very large they can be drained but often recur. Very large cysts are best excised in very rare circumstances
Surg: If it causes enough trouble then surgical excision would be indicated.See 1 more doctor answer
What do you suggest if my sister has got ganglion cyst on her knee joint. How can this be treated?
Only if painful: Ganglion cysts are fluid filled structures usually associated with a joint. The wrist is most commonly involved but any joint can be affected. If not bothersome, no treatment may be needed. Causes of knee cyst include inflammation, meniscal injuries, bursitis and tendinitis, or ligament injury. Large cysts behind the knee can affect circulation. If bothersome get it checked out.

Yes: Ganglion cysts on the top side (non-palm side) of the hand can be removed through an aspiration procedure. This is a simple office procedure where a needle is introduced into the ganglion cyst and its contents are aspirated. However, the risk of recurrence following an aspiration procedure is very high--as high as 75-80%. Consider the risks of recurrence when deciding on treatment options.See 3 more doctor answers
I have a dorsal ganglion cyst on my wrist. It is not painful but is it safe to get removed? Any complications/scaring wit surgery for this?
Try aspiration first: Ganglions are common benign cysts in the hand/wrist. You should have a doctor exam to confirm. I tell my patients who have pain-free cysts to monitor them. Cysts can go away on their own. If they becomes much larger, painful, or limit function, we can perform an aspiration procedure in the office (needle drainage). Surgery is successful for removal the majority of the time with few complications.See 2 more doctor answers
