    Meniscal Cyst - How can I get rid of it

    Ugh. No insurance. Big sudden lump on the outer side of my left leg. I can't remember any recent injuries. I did a heavy leg workout the day before it happened, but nothing earth shattering that I haven't done 100 times before.
    It's moves when I touch it, so I stopped freaking out that it's cancer. Doesn't hurt all that much, like a bruise but only when I am f*cking with it.

    A doctor is out of the question. Anyone else experience anything like this? What did you do?

    How do you know it is a meniscal cyst, without a doctor looking at it?
    A quick google revealed that they are usually - almost always - associated with a tear of the meniscus, which is an injury definitely on the not good list.

    A friend of mine had some fluid build up in his knee once. The RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) protocol worked well for him. Seriously, though, if it doesn't improve in a few days, I would strongly consider breaking your no doctor rule.
