Could a "partially ruptured bakers cyst" cause pain down to heel? And what is the treatment for that?

Yes it could: When you rupture a baker cyst, the fluids go down by gravity into the calf muscle and sometime cause pain in the calf muscles area.

Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

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?

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.

So it wasn't DVT it was a ruptured bakers cyst on the SIDE of my TKR causing pain and swelling in my knee, foot, and ankle is this strange? Not in calf

So it wasn't DVT it was a ruptured bakers cyst on the SIDE of my TKR causing pain and swelling in my knee, foot, and ankle is this strange? Not in calf

Yes strange!: A Baker's cyst is often associated with internal derangement of the knee and a "rupture" releases some joint fluid but this should NOT affect your foot and ankle. You need to see an Orthopedist or Sport's Medicine Specialist for an evaluation of your symptoms sooner rather than later! Good Luck Hope this helps Dr Z

Please see a doctor: If the cyst is very large and causes a lot of pain, your doctor may use the following treatments: your doctor may inject a corticosteroid medication, but it doesn't always prevent recurrence of the cyst. Your doctor may drain the fluid from the knee joint using a needle. Cold compression wrap and crutches may help reduce pain and swelling. Gentle range-of-motion and strengthening exercises.

What is a treatment and relief for bakers cyst?

What is a treatment and relief for bakers cyst?

Depends: Bakers cyst is a collection of fluid behind the knee. The fluid is usually extruded from the knee after irritation or injury. They're closely linked to meniscus tears and if this is the case then surgery to repair or remove the tear may cause the cyst to resolve. Sometimes draining the cyst and injecting steroid into it can relieve the symptoms.

Bakers cyst +ve for past 5 month, blood reports, CBC, Hb, ESR, Alkaline phosphate, Calcium, Phosphorous normal, Xray normal. What's the treatment?

Bakers cyst +ve for past 5 month, blood reports, CBC, Hb, ESR, Alkaline phosphate, Calcium, Phosphorous normal, Xray normal. What's the treatment?

Arthritis treatment.: The reason it is "Baker's" and not "Information Technologist Cyst" is that bakers were on their knees, caused irritation of the knee joint and the fluid pushed out of the joint like an inflated balloon. Treatment of the underlying inflammation helps (can involve draining the fluid and injecting steroids).

Is there a cure or relief from bakers cyst?

Is there a cure or relief from bakers cyst?

Yes: The cyst behind the knee comes from excess fluid production in the knee. Usually it is related to a meniscal tear irritating the joint. An MRI scan will reveal the intra-articular problem and an arthroscopic surgery of the knee will allow the baker's cyst to shrink away again.

What would cause a bakers cyst to form out of nowhere?

It depends.: It can be a meniscal tear or arthritis, that is causing the knee to produce fluid, which can collect in the back of the knee, thus, forming a baker's cyst. See an orthopedic knee specialist, who can determine the origin of the cyst.

Please tell me, could somebody pop a bakers cyst at home?

Not intentionally: Sometimes they rupture from activity or trauma and are very painful. A person should not try to do this intentionally. The cyst lies close to major vessels and nerves and would require more force than you could safely impart. In any case, a Baker's cyst is usually caused by a problem in your knee. It will return if the cause isn't addressed.

Is a bakers cyst a result of a torn miniscus?

Is a bakers cyst a result of a torn miniscus?

Yes it can be: Bakers' cysts are ubiquitus. As people age they become more common because the knee developes more arthritic change and the menisci lose their water content and tear more easily. A meniscus tear can cause a rent in the knee joint capsule and the increased joint fluid your body produces leaks out (to form the popliteal or bakers'cyst).See your ors. Good luck!

No: Baker's cysts are an extension of the knee joint synovium and occur with excess fluid due to arthritis, injury or other cause. It is not directly related to the lumps in your thighs unless they are part of a systemic disorder that produces arthritis.
