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

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.
