1 doctor agrees

In brief: Let me explain

Let me start with question, did you have mri, if you have it will if the meniscus torn or not.
There is two they could address your question. 1-if the meniscus is not torn they could take the cyst out by small incision, that will not require arthroscopy. 2-meniscus torn(positive mri) yes you need arthroscopy.
