I have one on the outside of my foot and a simple procedure to remove it is expected soon, but inside the knee must be painful.

Yes it can be Jomlett. Did mention to him about giving it a smack with a bible lol but he said if I hit it that hard to get to it I would be lucky to have knee left. Gave us a laugh anyway.
I had one on my wrist for many years. I too was advised to wallop it with a Bible. ! Yes, honestly. I didn't. I just lived with it and one day, many years later,, I noticed that it had gone. No Bibles were hurt in the loss of this ganglion !
Not heard of one on the knee, tend to be
Bakers cyst there.
If it's problematic and can't be drained, surgeon may excise it.

Yes ChillDoubt, he said it was rare to have one inside the knee but it's right inside the joint and from the scan he said it looked quite big.
No never had one.
Not usual in the knee, but can be attached to one of the cruciate ligaments.

It could be removed by endoscopic (keyhole) surgery.

The specialist I saw said it was unusual to have one in the knee. He even asked me to let him know the outcome of what the surgeon decided to do as he said they don't always tell him and he would like to know in case he comes across another one in the future.
Son had lump, size of gobstopper, on rear of knee (in the bend), called a bursur. He had op to cut it out.
Bursa.
