Patient discussion about articular

Q. My son was diagnosed with baker's cyst. Is he in a risk group for other articular diseases? As far as I understand baker's cyst is a risk factor for other diseases. Is it true? Do we need to send him to some special screening tests?

A. Baker's cyst is not a risk factor for articular diseases in children. You don't need any special screening test. Statistically the cyst will disappear after a while.
