How is a Baker’s Cyst Diagnosed?

It is important to always visit a qualified medical professional if you suspect that you have either a Baker’s Cyst or feel that your Baker’s Cyst may have ruptured or burst.
Your doctor will likely require you to have an ultrasound, which will be able to confirm the diagnosis of a Baker’s Cyst.
An ultrasound will also importantly rule out or alert the doctor to any existence of a blood clot which can have several similar symptoms to a  Baker’s Cyst.
If your doctor suspects an infection then they may require a blood test and possibly an aspiration of the synovial fluid for testing & culturing.
In some cases, an x-ray or MRI may be required to rule out any co-existing conditions that may have contributed to the condition.
Hence why it is always important to have a proper diagnosis.

Importantly it can present similarly to a blood clot, hence it is important to see a medical professional in order to rule this out.

I had a sore hip muscle at the back of my hip. The Dr. said we will drain the fluid out then give you a Cortisone shot. I said no way my hip was so sore it was painful sitting and going up stairs. I ordered your patches and the first night they came I […]

Swelling in the knee & arthritic pain in the knee

Dear Danniel,

I completed the OSMO Patch treatment and have found it to be very beneficial in that it has eliminated the swelling in my knee and has minimized the arthritic pain also present in my knee.  I consider it to be a very good treatment for reducing or totally eliminating swelling of an area.  I highly recommend its usage.

Baker's cyst caused by torn miniscus

Hi, I have been using the patches for a bakers cyst caused by torn miniscus. The patch takes care of it but in comes back in about a week. Is it safe to use a patch a week for an indefinite amount of time? Thank you,

Baker's cyst

I have an arthritic knee from playing American football and having an operation when I was 18. Going to a doctor to have it drained would cost me well over $220… I tried the OSMO Patch about a 1-2 years ago, thinking it may be a gimmick, and is was no gimmick because it works. The pressure on my knee is lessened by morning and I can move around a lot better. It is important to be open to alternatives to the traditional doctor visit and the “give me a pill” attitude that most of the public has because we, as individuals, have to realize that we, not someone else, are the most interested in our own health. Thank you,

Fluid on knees

We have purchased your patches for application on my husband’s knee.  It certainly drained some fluid from his knees, giving some relief after one application.
