I understand the problem.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
What is their best way to get rid of them cyst.
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Can you get it removed or drained
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 months ago.

It requires a surgical repair at this point.

The torn ligament needs to be repaired.

Cysts can be removed, but usually it is not the cyst that is the problem, the cyst is usually the result of other knee damage.

Arthroscopy [scope in the knee] with repair through the scope as indicated would be a standard practice.
