So if someone has knee pain and a Baker's cyst they should have arthroscopic surgery? If the MRI did show it does this indicate surgery?

"When you really dig into the relationship between injury, nociception and pain, it becomes blatantly obvious that the entire system is all about protection and not conveying an accurate indication of the state of the tissues"
