Blood clot or bakers cyst??

Posted , 2 users are following.

My left leg has been swollen and hurt on and off since spring 2019. A dr in june/july told me that it felt like a bakers cyst behind my knee. Had a d dimer blood test done and it was negative for a blood clot. Fast forward to this week. My leg has hurt horribly and I couldn't take it anymore so I went to the urgent care center. The dr said it felt like a bakers cyst. My leg has been swollen since spring and my leg hurts off and on. sometimes it will stop hurting for a few days or it wont hurt as bad as it normally does. For some reason, i am still so afraid of it being a blood clot in my leg. Should i still be worried and anxious that it is a blood clot? Someone please help I feel like a crazy person. I'm to the point where I am so scared I dont even want to get out of bed. I'm a 20 year old female
