ACL Ganglion- Help!

hey everyone first time post here. just happened to stumble upon this nice little community. here goes nuthin. i had an mri last week and the reading says i have a 13mm lobulated collection of fluid compatible with a ganglion of ACL origin.

Re: ACL Ganglion- Help!

I have had an ACL repair (full repair due to ACL rupture) but with a ganglion cyst of the ACL you may just need a simple arthroscopic repair (if you have symptoms consistent with the test findings).
