In brief: Related to knee inj

A bakers cyst is an accumulation of fluid behind the knee the cyst itself is typically uncomfortable, but may may related to some internal derangement in the knee.
If the cyst and discomfort remains, consider an orthopedic exam and possible MRI to evaluate a possible meniscal tear.
