I have had a bakers cyst years that has caused

Customer Question

I have had a bakers cyst for several years that has caused very little problems. Two weeks ago I went bowling and had lots of pain under my knee cap. After a few days of icing the area, the pain in the front of the knee went away and the area behind, where the bakers cyst is, swelled a bit and had been painful. This laster a few days, more icing then seemed to go away.Today when I got home from work, my leg (from the knee down) including my ankle and foot are very swollen. What should I do?
