Is this true?

It is usually following an extension injury of the knee, where your knee may have been slapped outward or you could have stepped into a hole. It is almost like a little herniation. And then the surrounding tissue of the joints starts to poke outward, and then starts to fill with fluid and gets bigger and bigger and bigger.

The main symptom for a Baker’s cyst is fullness behind the knee. And it rarely causes more than that. So, you may have some difficulty flexing your knee, folding your knee, but rarely does it cause pain.[/testimonial][/testimonials]
