Can you get a bakers cyst in both knees? And is rest the only option? I have been told it due to arthritis but no scan or xrays done?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes , possible

But usually seen on one side , baker cyst(s) is caused by some internal derangement inside the knee joint , like arthritis , meniscus , or ligamental injury , causing secretion of synovial fluid , almost like a ganglion cyst in the wrist , if you have arthritis rest will help you , ask your doctor and complete the tests
