What is Meniscus Cyst?

Description of the disease

A meniscus cyst is a fluid-filled cavity that forms in the meniscus of the knee. The meniscus is a cartilaginous tissue that helps cushion impacts and provides stability in the knee joint. The cyst can occur as a result of injury or wear and tear of the meniscus.


  • Meniscal cyst
  • Synovial cyst


  • Pain and discomfort in the knee area
  • Swelling
  • Sensation of stiffness in movements


A meniscus cyst can occur due to injury, meniscus wear and tear, or other conditions such as arthritis.


For the diagnosis of a meniscus cyst, X-ray examination, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or ultrasound is performed.


Treatment of a meniscus cyst may include physiotherapy, medication, and in some cases, surgical removal of the cyst.


To prevent the development of a meniscus cyst, it is important to avoid knee injuries, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and seek medical attention promptly if experiencing knee pain.


A meniscus cyst is treated by an orthopedic surgeon or a traumatologist.
