Baker’s cyst

A Baker’s cyst is a fluid filled swelling on the back of the knee, which become inflamed and causes pain and clicking of the joint.


It can often go away with rest, anti-inflammatories and steroid injections but if the cyst ruptures and damages your knee you may need a knee arthroscopy to look inside and repair any damage.
