How should you treat a bakers cyst at the back of the knee?
« on: December 03, 2015, 02:07:20 PM »
Actually mine has gotten smaller and is now just a larger than normal bursa, but I have pain at the back of the knee/ top of calf area, which I think is caused by the bursa, is there any way to speed up the reduction back to its normal size?

Hi!
So I've never had a baker's cyst, but I'm pretty sure they can drain the cyst to speed it up. Hopefully someone will comment with personal experience, but I know that draining is an option for some people

Thanks, would they still drain it if it's only slightly larger than normal? My mri showed it had decreased in size
