Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,you shouldn't ignore your symptoms and you should see your doctor for treatment including fluid draining, physical therapy, or corticosteroid medication.

It'll not go away by it's own in your case.

Common causes of a baker's cyst include damage to the knee’s cartilage so your doctor determine that you have damage to the cartilage and further surgical intervention should be done.

In the meantime take OTC Motrin.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
