it may be cysts,bone spur,tumors etc...Cysts about the knee have multiple etiologies, including irritated and inflamed bursae, meniscal cysts caused by intra-articular pathology, and special categories, such the following:
Baker cyst or popliteal cyst
Ganglia (both intra-articular and extra-articular)
It is important to realize that other processes can mimic cysts on MRI. Benign and malignant tumors must be ruled out during the workup of any cyst about the knee; other entities to consider are abscesses and vascular masses, such as popliteal vein varices and popliteal artery aneurysms.
